Alex Ebert tells the story behind the first album from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros ‘Up from Below’. As part of our ‘Classic Albums at Home’ programme of online events, Alex discusses his own personal recollections of the album and why it has endured as a classic.

After the album presentation, we encourage you all to play the entire album from beginning to end, without interruption, on any format available to you. We ask that you follow the Classic Album Sunday listening guidelines: turn off our phone, refrain from conversation and give yourself over to the music.

We all need to look after ourselves during these challenging times and music can help. Listening to music can improve memory, aid healing, alleviate pain, decrease stress and more. With that in mind, we have created a weekly program of online events to ease anxiety, educate, connect and have fun!

Welcome to Classic Albums at Home.
