Here We Go Magic

...we came across Brooklyn's Here We Go Magic a while back, only finally digging in deep last week. The brainchild of one Luke Temple, HWGM's self-titled debut (out on Western Vinyl) proves yet again the merits of the lo-fi aesthtetic. Temple worked out of his Brooklyn apartment on 4-track cassette and coming up with a hauntingly beautiful assemblage of tunes filled with the exploratory range that lo-fi embraces. Cloudy, ethereal vocals float over spacious percussion and snaking guitar lines. Adding a handful of friends to compliment the live version of Here We Go Magic, Temple & co. will be hitting SXSW this week and later this spring will be out on the road with Grizzly Bear. Here's some tunes and tour dates:
