For any other group, album three is a make or break point. Yet Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros act as cool as a summer breeze. Their self-titled LP has the troupe’s familiar indie-“folk”-meets-psychedelia soundings, yet adds some new wrinkles (the Beatles-aping “If I Were Free”; the haunting “They Were Wrong”). With bouncy hooks and back-and-forth harmonies combined with singer Alex Ebert’s lyrics, the group knows what they are—and they’re perfectly fine with that.
