Alexander Ebert, lead singer of Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, will be releasing his debut solo album Alexander on March 1st via Community Music (Rough Trade will release the album in Europe on February 28th). The album will include ten brand new songs that Alexander wrote and composed entirely himself. The track-list for the album can be found below. During breaks from touring with the Zeroes over the past year, Alexander began building and recording the pieces that would become the songs for this album alone in his bedroom. Before this album, all of the music he worked on had been collaborative, especially with the 10-person Magnetic Zeroes. "I wanted to be able to build an album basically with my hands, like building a house by myself," Alexander remarked of his inspiration for making this album without outside help. There isn't a single sound on the ten-song album that Alexander didn't perform himself. Alone in his room, he had his guitar, a Lowery organ he picked up at a St. Vincent's thrift store in Los Angeles for seventy bucks, a clarinet he used for the bridge on the record's first single, "Truth," and a violin he'd found somewhere in Tucson on tour. He had his own voice, his breath, his knees to slap, his fingers to snap and his toes to tap. When he knew that he ...

You Better Move on - Arthur Alexander
Alexander (Original Soundtrack)
Limited double 180gm red vinyl LP pressing. Alexander is the original film score of the film Alexander, and created by Greek electronic composer Vangelis. 'I tried to remember how it was to live at the time, to be there. At the same time, I must speak the music language which is understandable today, because we're addressing thousands, millions in the audience.' - said Vangelis. Throughout the soundtrack there's a healthy blend of different styles, from orchestral choir vocals to his synthesizer sounds. It took Vangelis almost a year to compose the score and the end result is a fascinating one. He's searching for the perfect harmony between his different musical styles. Alexander received the Public Choice Award at the 2005 World Soundtrack Academy.

Vinyl LP pressing of this 1971 album in gatefold jacket. Includes extensive liner notes by Harold Alexander himself. Harold Alexander was a competent saxophonist and dynamic flutist whose early and mid-'70s albums for Flying Dutchman and Atlantic blended originals, soul/jazz and R&B effectively. Alexander recorded three albums (including a live 'Montreux Jazz Festival' record in 1972) and contributed to various other recordings during his career. His most recognized LP is 1971's Sunshine Man, on Flying Dutchman Records. On that album, the most sought-after groove is the straight up banger 'Mama Soul', which features insane scatting over a delicious funky flute and organ driven beat. An immaculate six minutes of mental vocals and Alexander's flute doing exactly what the vocals are doing. It comes as no surprise that 'Mama Soul' was sampled multiple times by artists from Blackalicious to DJ Shadow. Another highlight (one of the many on this album) is the adept double beat from iconic drummer Bernard 'Pretty' Purdie (husband to Aretha Franklin and known for his work with Isaac Hayes, Cat Stevens, B.B. King and Joe Cocker) who is delivering some of the most tight and wicked drum-skills known to man. Bass duties here are filled by another icon: the award-winning Richard Davies (known ...
