Folk/gospel/cult rock group Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros released "That's What's Up" off their upcoming album Here on Monday. The 12-person group that skyrocketed to indie fame with their 2009 album Up from Below and their wildly popular song "Home" is finally at it again.
"That's What's Up" is a twangy folk duet that borders on cheeky, but is saved by the lofi quality and electric guitar. The highlight comes near the end though, when the music cuts out for rhythmic clapping and a gospel-choir like-solo from singer Jade Castrinos.
The group released an equally as twangy track, "Man on Fire," on KCRW a month ago. Here is out on May 29.
