"Home," the Song

This is how it looked and sounded when Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros played "Home" on the Letterman show a short while back:

It's hard to know what to make of this music. I like it's slightly out of control quality, and it's just plain catchy. It's a cross between The Arcade Fire, the lovely-then-funny duet between Steve Martin and Bernadette Peters in The Jerk, and something you might have tried to avoid watching on Hee-Haw. I hope the two singers are just play-acting about their love for each other -- we all saw what became of Fleetwood Mac. For purposes of this blog post, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks broke up, the plane crashed over the Andes as a result of one of their violent rows, and Stevie Nicks alone survived on the flesh of snow-sloths and band-mates. Good times.
