Listening To: Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros

"40 Day Dream"

Reminds me in a major way of Arcade Fire, with the violin and piano leading the way for the guitar and drum, clapping punctuating the song, and choir vocals occasionally elevating the drama.  Also, am I crazy, or does his voice sometimes kind of sound like Joe Strummer from the Clash?  And for another random reference, I swear there's something about them reminiscent of David Bowie... is it just the reverb?

Again, the whole album is really good-- also check out "Up From Below" and "Janglin" for sure.
