Alexander Ebert may best be known for his contributions as lead singer of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros or Ima Robot but this album should change all that. Ebert's debut as a solo artist exemplifies his abilities as a songwriter of considerable talent and creativity. And his creativity is abundantly clear on Alexander as he shows us just how much of a Renaissance man he is. Everything on this album is self made from the sounds coming out of the Lowery organ right down to the hand claps [...]
BROKEN BELLS(Remix)Alright, today I've got an odd mix of sounds for all of you. Right off the bat, Sub Swara's remix of Broken Bells' "Meyrin Fields". It's got a very subtle dubstep feel to it during each breakdown(?) and although that may scare some of you away I strongly suggest you listen because the overall final product is pretty stellar. This is the first time I've heard of Sub Swara but

Alexander Ebert (of Edward Sharpe) lets his weird free-spiritedness shine through in this new clip for "A Million Years." The feel good jam is one of many from his solo debut Alexander , out now on Community Music. If you didn't grab the tune from our latest mixtape (shame on you), download it below via Soundcloud.
Dude, it's 4.20. Like, 10 years ago this day would've rocked. Despite the fact that there is far less weed in my life these days, I still dig videos featuring adorable little children and trippy imagery from one of my favorite hippies. Is it weird I wanna get married and walk down the aisle to this dude breathing heavily? Alexander Ebert :: A Million Years [STREAM] BUY [...]
Briefly stepping away from the folkmob that made possible his commercial and critical breakthrough, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros frontman Alexander Ebert is now pricking up ears with numbers from his solo tour de force, Alexander . While I gotta admit that I never found myself queuing up for the "tambourines and all" aesthetic of the Mag Zeroes, I appreciate Ebert's approach to recording his debut, eschewing collaboration and constructing a deeply personal song cycle that truly represents his vision, warts and all. For me, [...]

Alexander Ebert, der alte Rumtreiber, lässt für ein Album seine Gefolgschaft zurück und versucht es erstmals allein mit sich und der Musik. Seit längerem ist Alexander Ebert an zwei Fronten aktiv, führt parallel die Synth-Punk-Kombo Ima Robot und den zotteligen Hippie-Trupp Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes an. Mit Letzterem veröffentlicht er 2009 das Album "Up From Below" und findet mit der überdrehten Kreuzung von psychedelischem Wüsten-Musical, Kommunen-Spirit und dem Singalong-Duett " Home " ein ergebenes Publikum. Ob [...]
Let it be known: I am very rarely moved to write album reviews. Usually I find them too daunting. This is the first album I’ve listened to that not only inspired a strong opinion, but one that I felt compelled to share in writing. So basically this is my first ever non-soundtrack album review. Crazy, right? Maybe I’ve just reached “that point” in my blogging career, but all I know is I’m going with it. It should also probably be known: I have seen Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros more times live than any other [...]
Alexander Ebert è il frontman degli Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros . "Alexander" è il titolo del suo debutto da solista ( Vagrant ) ed è un?album folk-pop davvero eccellente. Alexander Ebert - Truth
This is one of the best weeks for releases this year and even though there are goodies like Lykke Li, Devotchka, Eisley, Middle Brother, Papercuts, Rural Alberta Advantage...need I go on? There are about 10 more highly anticipated albums to add to that list, yet Alexander's was the one I bought first thing this morning because I just knew it was going to be ten perfect tracks. And it is. In case you don't know, Alexander is the debut solo project of Alexander Ebert the frontman of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes. One [...]

Either Alexander Ebert is such a gifted artist that he just has to keep creating or the guy has A.D.D.
Alexander Ebert, lead singer of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros , is releasing his solo debut this week (March 1st) via Community Music. Going simply by Alexander, the new set of songs are slightly more mellow and introspective than the Magnetic Zeros' debut, yet still feature all of organic sounds and 602s jingling and jangling you'd expect to hear from the band's frontman. No raucous, foot-stomping anthems (i.e. "Home" ) here, but a really enjoyable album nonetheless. Stream Alexander and download the album's first single "Truth" below. In other [...]
It is not very often that we are graced with such a phenomenal folk album as Alexander , much less one of such unabashed glory as Alexander Ebert ’s first effort in the solo field. While you may be more familiar with his alter ego, Edward Sharpe , his unmistakable charm and candor is as present as ever. Featuring such songs as previously mentioned “ Truth ” and “ Million Years ,” the album is far more than just the sum of those two songs. Every song on the album is equal, if not better in quality [...]
Monday Music is the weekly wherein SOIWT dispenses with its trademark London focus and goes global. It's the musical equivalent of KFC offering beef burgers and pork chops. Which would be a crap idea. Yes. But this isn't a crap idea. No. Hmm. Good. Let's begin.. Alexander - Truth ( mp3 ) This is no ordinary Alexander, but Alexander Ebert of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes fame. And, as one might reasonably expect from such an eccentric, charismatic frontman, this is partly a nuts number: think whistling like when an outsider enters a [...]
