Alexander Ebert can't stop reinventing himself. This time Ebert has reinvented himself....as himself. Thank god. Ebert's new album has some incredible songs. I've always loved Ebert's songwriting and musical delivery; akin to the virtuosity of David Byrne, with the work ethic of Arthur Russel. After a stint as the lead singer and founder of the hippie-big-band-orchestra Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes, who enjoyed a seemingly flash point meteoric rise, Alexander Ebert has gotten back together with himself. His album, titled Alexander, is more self exploratory, somewhat somber, and purely honest.
