Here We Go Magic
Here We Go Magic started as the new solo project of Luke Temple, who had already been releasing music under his own name in the first decade of the 21st century. In 2009 he released a first album on Western Vinyl. It was acclaimed both critically and publicly, as well as by his peers. For example, Sufjan Stevens deemed his voice one of the best in pop. The lo-fi sounding effort was recorded on a four-track recorder with a microphone, a synthesiser and an acoustic guitar. It features some magical melodies in the vein of Grizzly Bear, alongside foggy electronic textures and subtle touches of psychedelia reminiscent of Panda Bear. For his second album, “Pigeons”, Temple decided to round up a band - he was joined by Michael Bloch, Peter Hale, Jen Turner and Kristina Lieberson.
