Riff: Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros – “This Life”

Jun 20, 2013

LIAR/I’m telling the truth to y’all/HIGHER/I’m gonna give a little proof to y’all/I’m gonna jump into the fire!

from This Life lyrics by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros

Ebert and his barefooted cutesy Americana gang chase the soul promise land with this redemptive biblical tale in which a choir and a swelling horn section assist a man burn his shortcomings in effigy for an overwrought tearful reward. But at least they’re trying to earn their yearn now; [LISTEN].
