SALVO! by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes

Edwarde Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, one of my favorite bands of 2009, is releasing a 12 part music video series called SALVO! which is like an epic rock opera for our modern day times. So far only the two videos above have been released but this is looking like a huge project. Each video so far has been absolutely beautiful, with lush imagery of deserts and sunsets, telling the story of Edward Sharpe. They’re also pretty damn trippy, which makes them all the more fun

The videos are directed by Benjamin Kutsko and Cory Marrero and I think they did an excellent job. I’m definitely looking forward to more of these, even for th visuals alone which are amazing. It certainly helps that they also wrote one of the best albums of the year to score it with.
