Here We Go Magic

Here We Go Magic

 After previously releasing two folk albums under his own name in the mid-2000s,[1]Luke Temple released a self-titled album as Here We Go Magic in February 2009 onWestern Vinyl, described by Pitchfork Media as "hazy electronic textures, endlessly-spiraling lyrical loops, occasional forays into extended sections of ambience and noise".[2][3] Temple recorded the album at home on a 4-track recorder, describing the recording: "I just had one tom, one microphone, a synth and an acoustic guitar. I didn’t have a full drum kit or normal bass, it was just all synth stuff that I did myself."[4]

Temple has since expanded the project into a band with musicians Kristina Lieberson (keyboards), Michael Bloch (guitar), Jennifer Turner (bass guitar), and Peter Hale (drums), and they were signed by Secretly Canadian in September 2009.[5][6][7][8]They toured in 2009 with Grizzly Bear and The Walkmen.[9] The second albumPigeons is set for release on June 8, 2010.[10] The first single off Pigeons, "Collector", was rated "Best New Music" by Pitchfork Media on March 18, 2010.[11] The band performed at the SXSW festival in 2009 and again in March 2010,[9] and just completed tours of North America with White Rabbits[12] and Europe with The New Pornographers.[13] In summer 2010 the band played at multiple major festivals including PrimaveraSoundBonnarooPitchfork, The Great Escape, Latitude,Bestival, and Glastonbury,[14] where Thom Yorke said they were his favorite act of the festival.[15] They ended the year 2010 touring with the Canadian band Broken Social Scene.
