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.

Last night i went to the cinema to to see the british remake of the film “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”, the film itself was amazing really well cast and well transfered from a Danish script.

However it was a added bonus that the soundtrack was written by Trent Reznor the Nine Inch Nails (NIN) front-man and English composer Atticus Ross. And what a fantastic job they have done, the stand out favourite is the opening track of a remix of Led Zeplin’s classic “The Immigrant Song”. This was not just any old remix though, with punchy guest vocals provided by Yeah Yeah Yeahs badass mistress Karen O.

Even if you don’t like the original song i guarantee that this version will be ringing in your ears for the rest of the year. Enjoy.  

Find out about the film here and you can buy the soundtrack here.
