Best of 2011: Alexander

Alexander Ebert, best known as the lead singer from Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, created a solo debut album released last March simply entitled “Alexander”. With sounds combining a mix of western with familiar whistles and brightly lit melancholy lyrics, Alexander provides the most infectious melodies, making a listener want to press repeat over and over and over again.

I’ve grown up some
Different kinda fighter
And when the darkness come, let it inside you
Your darkness is shining
My darkness is shining

Listen: Alexander – Truth

About The Author


“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle Maree, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
