I first discovered Bandit Photographer when I stumbled upon a “homemade” video he had done about waxing the Mister Freedom N1-H deck Jacket. Cory Piehowicz aka Bandit Photographer’s blog is so remeniscent of the old days that it makes me wonder if he has a time machine. You can tell this guy is living right. Hanging with pals exploring mineshafts, sequoias, sand dunes, and antique shops. Sharing photos of his vintage finds and explorations all the while.
You lovely people are in for a treat, this is the beautiful and wonderful sound of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, with their track “Home”. I noticed this track when watching the trailer for the film “Big Easy Express” a film documenting the band along with Mumford and Sons, and Old Crow Medicine Show’s tour across america, on a one of a kind steam train. This songs lovable feel and love tangled lyrics portray a relationship in the early stages of a bosoming romance. It outlines the importance of having friends and family close by to help out when things get tough and support you in all that you do.
The Band themselves consist of twelve full members and eight people who help out form time to time. This generates a powerful as well as unique sound consisting of folk music with choir like vocals making you feel warm and welcome. Started in California in 2005 the band have moved fast and have quickly gathered a diverse and dedicated fan base all over the US. The UK is now starting to have their boarders breached and with the success of bands like Mumford and Sons and Fleet Foxes they will surely soon been appearing in venues very soon.
The track “Home” is taken from their début album “Up From Below” which is available now.
