Alexander and Fam + He's My Brother She's My Sister

Time Out says

Part of the charm of the song “Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros is that it’s about finding yourself. And it was cool that the singer's backstory matched up: Alex Ebert fronted ImaRobot, got addicted to drugs and self-destructed before finding sweet salvation performing as Edward Sharpe. Well, Ebert is now making music under his own name; he plays all the instruments on his solo debut, Alexander, himself, and is currently touring with a band called Fam. No official, juicy explanation has been given for his old band being shelved, but this new album is pretty appealing stuff, combining 1960s Spaghetti Western pop (à la Lee Hazlewood) with a pinch of old-school ska. Odds are that Ebert will return to NYC next year performing as someone else entirely, but for now we suggest you just enjoy this while you can.
