Show Review

We haven't ever met a band quite like Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros. Their self-professed embrace of child-like wonder is the piston that powers their music, their sunny disposition, and their recognition that every moment is a once in a life time opportunity to create and connect...with themselves, with their wildly enthusiastic followers, or something universally bigger. That shows sell out in their wake everywhere the eleven piece band play is no big surprise. Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros are special, getting more than just a kick out of playing the peppy, folk creations of their debut Up From Below and their recent follow-up Here.

Recently we had the privilege to spend a bit of time with the band during a concert stop for the fine folks of WXPN in Philadelphia. We spoke at length with Edward's bandleader Alexander Ebert and are posting a series of videos all month long (you can have a look at the first piece HERE). But we also had the opportunity to aim our cameras at the band's performance. Piling all eleven members of the band on stage, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros showcased a handful of their new, more meditative song fare from Here, as well as made sure to pepper in a few crowd favorites from Up From Below (for old time's sake...). It was a special opportunity. Today we're thrilled to be releasing the full, uninterrupted edit of the band's acoustic-ish performance in Philadelphia. We think you'll find there's nothing else quite like this out there.

I love my god, god made love
I love my god, god made love I love my god, god made hate
I love my god, god made hate I love my god, god made good
I love my god, god made good I love my god, god made bad
I love my god, god made me But I don't want to pray to my maker
I just want to be feeling free Not just who I am
But the pink in golden land And that wide wild sky over me
Help me to the sun, Hey I'm looking everywhere
See I'm looking to become not the pray-er, but the prayer
And now I don't want to pray, no I say I don't want to pray, no
And now I don't want to pray Who don't want to pray
I love my god, god made love I love my god, god made love
I love my god, god made hate I love my god, god made hate
I love my god, god made good I love my god, god made love
But I don't want to pray to my maker I just want to be what I see
Not like in a book, Or the leaves in trees that shook
From a word that means only not a thing pardon god and mom
If what I'm saying' isn't fair But I'm looking to become
Not the prayer but the prayer And now I don't want to pray No
I say I don't want to pray No And now I don't want to pray
Who don't want to pray not much good to talk, better to walk it
Not much good to take, better to give
We are all forgiven and forgotten of our sins
Well I promise you my friend
All that dies will live again Pardon god and mom
If what I'm sayin' isn't fair But I'm looking to become
Not the pray-er but the prayer And now I don't want to pray No
I say I don't want to pray No And now I don't want to pray
Who don't want to pray I love my god, god made love
I love my god, god made love I love my god, god made hate
I love my god, god made hate I love my god, god made good
I love my god, god made good I love my god, god made bad
I love my god, god made me.

Fire Water
We're all still learning.
The river forgives
All tides are turning.
Yeah, well some say that the river won't flow
They say it's going to go run dry Once more the river will flow
For every time it ran slow you know we'll all be riding on river of love
Love And ever will it stay running.
River River
River However dark or cold the night is
Right where you go There's where the light is
My love The sun is your reflection
It's true, we're one We're one another
Lay down your arms Love is your god
Open our hearts please, And love god of hope
And know that love will see us all Farther down this river
To a place we've never ever known And when we sing our song we'll know the
sound of love delivered to its hiding place beneath the winter snow
- I hope this is being recorded, or maybe go on a radio or something.
- Thank you for coming to Philly! - It's so far out of the way.
Sorry I just woke up.

What else are we going to do? - "Man on Fire" - "Man on Fire.

You got that? You put it right on my microphone.
- You understand what I'm saying? - Man I love this type of stuff.

With one guitar and two dancing feet
Only one desire That's left in me
I want the whole damn world To come dance with me
Ohhhh Come dance with me
Over murder and pain Mmmm
Come set us free Over heartache and shame
I want to see our bodies burning Like the old big sun
I want to know what we've been Learning and learning from
Ohhh Everybody want safety
Safety love Everybody want comfort
Comfort love Everybody want certain
Certain love Everybody but me
I'm a man on fire I'm a man on fire
Walking down your street Walking down your street
With one guitar One guitar
And two dancing feet Two dancing feet
Only one desire One desire
That's left in me Left in me
I want the whole damn world to come and dance with me.

To come and dance with me Come and dance with me yeah
The voices in my head are shadows
shadows She comes to me
To tell me what they're after says, "It ain't the end boy
But you best be careful, careful now.
" Might catch your tail end in a circle
Circle The ocean how she moves in ripples
ripples In flashing lights I swear she was an
old film Then the color bleeds
And she becomes an angel, angel Calls out to me like a siren to a
scoundrel I say, "Come on child."
Oh I say, "Come on child.
" The blanket where she hides my virgin
lights look to the sea where the cotton hits the
turnpike Staring at her knees
But I don't have the words right, words right now
If up to me my maker turned right, turned right
Lost another one but she still smiles, smiles
Black loving eyes and a stare that sees for miles says she wants to be
Oh wants to stay a child, child now and wonders why we ever, ever have to die
And I say, "Come on child.
" And I say, "Come on child."
Just a touch I'm going to carry, carry Another time where I probably shared the
same life The accent of a kiss whispers
We're married, married now It's either love or just the sun in my
eyes And I say, "Come on child."
Oh I say, "Come on child.
" Love love love love love
- This one's for old time's sake.
I don't know if I've ever said that.
Hey Alabama, Arkansas, I do love my Ma and Pa
Yeah, you know I love you too Now, holy moly me oh my
You're the apple of our eye We never loved one 'til you

Artist Bio

The album has sold over 275,000 copies in the US, and charted on iTunes for 69 straight weeks. With its unique and universal appeal, their hit single Home soared to over 775,000 downloads.

The album includes ten brand new songs that Alexander wrote and played entirely himself. In April 2011, the band embarked on the Railroad Revival Tour with Mumford & Sons and Old Crow Medicine Show where the band traveled exclusively in vintage railcars across the American Southwest for a week and played concerts at unique outdoor locations along the route.
