Biography

Here We Go Magic spent the better part of 2011 putting together "A Different Ship" with producer Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Beck). The resulting album is sunny and spacious, with "How Do I Know" as its molten core. With its instantly hummable refrain, the song builds layer by layer from a simple guitar-vocals-drums combo into a swirling symphony of glorious noise.

Editorial Reviews

Luke Temple is certainly held in high regards amongst the US underground. From Sufjan to Ben Gibbard and Grizzly Bear , Luke and his new group Here We Go Magic have a ton of supporters. Developed over a two-month period of stream-of-consciousness recording in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, Luke's self-titled debut under his new moniker Here We Go Magic is a remarkable departure from his signature singer-songwriter material. Luke recorded the album at home using analog synths, a cassette 4-track, and his trusty SM-57 mic, colouring the sound with warmth and creating textures.

5.0 out of 5 stars swimming with the fishes June 16, 2009
Format:Audio CD
The TUNNELVISION track is gorgeous and hypnotic, the kind of song you want to listen to over and over. It alone makes this album worth it. FANGELA is close behind; some people like it best from what I've seen online. I like AHAB a lot, and ONLY PIECES as well as UNDERWATER. The so-called noise section didn't do it for me at first, but it's grown on me some. It has a soothing quality as background sound. BIG is kind of goofy but charming and poignant at the same time. It's an unusual mixture of down lyrics and up melody. I saw the group live at the Berklee Performance Center in Boston and they knocked everyone out. Most of the people were there to see Grizzly Bear and they were saying, "Wow, who are these guys?"

4.0 out of 5 stars Echoes of Talking Heads and Paul Simon July 7, 2010
By JG
Format:Audio CD
I recently caught the tail end of a "Here we go Magic" song on the local college radio station. Lucky for me, it was also the last song of a set, and the DJ came on and said "...that last one was by...". So I made a mental note to order the CD whenever I'd get a chance. I made a mistake when I placed my order, and instead of ordering "Pigeons", which the radio song came from, I ordered the self titled "Here we go..." from last year.

Well, it's been said that through synchronicity we stumble upon new things, or, alternatively, always hope for happy accidents, since the album turned out to be quite good.

It begins with a polyrhythm seemingly straight out of Paul Simon's "Rhythm of the Saints". "This is already starting out good" I think to myself. The rhythms are followed by Simon vocal stylings without being annoying. Three songs into the CD, though, things start getting into more of a David Byrne/Talking Heads circa Bush of Ghosts and Remain In Light sound, even down to the Adrian Belew sounding guitar....wait, is that you, Adrian? Maybe, maybe not.

In any case, as the CD progresses, one gets the impression that hallucinogens might have been involved during the recording sessions. And that's a good thing.

The album finishes off with a Beatles inflected song. Overall, it's a great CD. Now I just need to order "Pigeons", and we'll see where this psychedelic train ends up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Jammy, 60's inspired, psychedelic rock October 15, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Jammy, 60's inspired, psychedelic rock without the 6-12 minute sessions that have been known to wear out potential listeners of The Black Angels and Brian Jonestown Massacre. Much like BJM, Here We Go Magic is a band centered around a one man show; a well mannered and tempered Luke Temple. Why does the last track , "Everything's Big", say (Featuring Luke Temple) if they ALL feature Luke Temple?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great songs, bad MP3s September 18, 2009
Format:MP3 Music
I really liked these songs Only Pieces, Ahab and Tunnelvision. The problem for me is that the sound on the MP3's I bought are pretty bad. Distorted like the levels were set too high. I DJ and I keep wanting to use these tracks but they sound awful in a large room. I have plenty of great sounding MP3's from Amazon so I know it's not the compression. Wondering if anyone knows if the CD is any better. There seems to be a strange trend towards bad sound these days on purpose. If that is the case then I don't get it.
