Alex Ebert (better known as Edward Sharpe, the frontman of the Magnetic Zeroes and the male voice on the infectiously happy 2009 track "Home") doesn't spend all of his time as an imaginary messianic figure... first he fronted Ima Robot, an electro-band from LA. As the band prepares to release its latest LP, Another Man's Treasure, due in the fall on their own label Werewolf Heart Records, they've released two songs so far... "Ruthless", which impacted a month ago, and now this, an exploration of visual and sonic confusion (best I can describe it).

Delve deep into the electronic layers of sound and noise with the new track "Rough Night", a sentiment that is echoed visually with Turbotito directed video we're excited to be premiering on Baeble. What starts as a fuzzy black and white look into a seemingly simple mock-up of the solar system soon evolves into a Rorschach test of fuzzy imagery. It might require a few viewings, as the panning sometimes takes you so far out of the muddy imagery. At one point, a campfire turns into a volcano with lightning?... you'll see what I mean.






Another Man's Treasure is out 10/19. -joe puglisi
