About two months ago, we wrote aboutAlexander, the solo album of Alex Ebert, Edward Sharpe of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros and the frontman of Ima Robot. The album, which was released on March 1st, was recorded entirely by Ebert while he was on tour with The Magnetic Zeros. Ebert will also be playing shows in support of the solo album before heading back to the studio to begin recording on Edward Sharpe & THe Magnetic Zeros' second album. After the jump you can listen to the album in its entirety, with the tracks "Truth," "A Million Years," and "Let's Win!" being available for free download here. Enjoy!
Alex Ebert, better known as the frontman for Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros as well as Ima Robot, has taken a short break from his group projects in order to promote himself as a solo artist.

The album will be supported with a few shows before Mr. Ebert heads back to the studio for Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros' second LP, due out later this year. Alexander is due out on March 1st, and you can check out the tracklisting below!

We did a review on the album yesterday and now you can hear the full new experimental Ima Robot album Another Man's Treasure in full with the bonus tracks. If you are enjoying the new sound, head over to band's website and pick yourself up a copy.
Indie Dance/Punk band Ima Robot recently released their newest album Another Man's Treasure earlier in the week. For those that missed out, we posted the first single (along with its video) titled "Ruthless" around beginning of the month. Upon the first listen through of the new album, I could already tell that fans of the band's previous efforts might turn away from this one as the band approaches a completely different sound. AMT feels like the Ima Robot is experimenting with softer, more electronic rock sound. Although, if I could compare this album to any other artist, I would say TV On The Radio (Dear Science era) or Modest Mouse with a hint of Bowie at times, especially on the song "Sail With Me" (which you can check out on the player below).
Other standout tracks on this album are "Ruthless" and the beautiful acoustic folk rock tune "Shine, Shine." Unfortunately, you won't find alot of (if any) fast paced, energetic songs that Ima Robot is notorious for. Therefore, as stated earlier, some older fans might turn away from this one. The album only consists of 8 new tunes which is a pretty short listen, however, that doesn't mean you should totally avoid AMT as it is a pretty decent album. You can head over to the band's MySpace Page to preview the album and if you dig it head over to the Ima Robot website and check out the pretty sweet (and cheap) package deals they have for the album, which also includes bonus tracks and an additional EP if these 8 tracks don't do it for you.
Alex Ebert and his bandmates Tim Anderson and Fillip Nicolic, better known as Ima Robot return with a new album titled Another Man’s Treasure, which will be available everywhere on Oct 19. The album was produced by Robot guitarist Tim Anderson (Dead Man’s Bones, The Goat) and will be released on Anderson’s label, Werewolf Heart Records.
Check out the video for their first single "Ruthless" above and grab the download below.
