The world’s most expansive Messianic group is back with a gorgeous cover of a classic John Denver song which totally fits their folksy vibes. In other news, I wish I too was super edgy.
So Edward Sharpe and co are back, and this time they cover some old John Denver material. It’s been a while now since Here was released, so it’s nice to hear the group releasing anything to be honest, original content or not. With that in mind, it’s safe to say that they’ve still totally got it with Wooden Indian.
From those first few chords, this is vintage Edward Sharpe. That voice we have grown to love kicks in, with the same rasping qualities to it, reaching out and grabbing you. This song could be taken straight from the 60’s and that’s totally to its quality, as this fits it so well. I love that the notes incorporated are reminiscent of Native American music, and there’s an earthly quality to the music which just works. Edward Sharpe you’ve done it again you magnificent maniac.
