Indie folk and jelly beans

I know I’ve already told you about the amazing hummability (it is a word, at least here) of the indie folk band Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeroes. However, I had not covered their entire album before, just Home.

After tasting their new album Up from Below for days and giving each track enough time to settle, here are some more amazing tracks besides Home.

  1. Jade – reminds me a bit of Peace Train by Cat Stevens!
  2. Simplest Love – subtle. Kind of like a country boy serenading Juliet.
  3. Brother – song for peace.
Om Nashi Me is very catchy, though its first half buildup is stronger than the rest. And give Come In Please a hear just for its last one minute. You won’t regret it.
Now, for the Jelly beans. A very hard-to-believe concept was a stop-motion music video that took 22 months to finish. Why did it take so long? Its background was made completely with jellybeans. No effects! Check it out over at John’s amazing post. For me, its making-of video is more fascinating than the song itself (no offence).
