"Now available on vinyl! Developed over a two-month period of stream-of-consciousness recording in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, Luke Temple'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, coloring the sound with warmth and creating textures you want to wrap yourself in. The album opens with the trance-inducing polyrhythms and gorgeous multi-layered vocals of 'Only Pieces.' What follows is an album oozing with sounds maternal and subconscious, like floating in amniotic fluid, ripe, hiccup-y and desperate to emerge. Many of the songs pulse with infectious Afro-beat and Krautrock influenced grooves, calling to mind classic albums like Remain in the Light and Graceland. Despite the album's murky aquatic underpinnings it's hard to resist shakin' what you got to ebullient blissed-out tracks like 'Fangala' and 'Tunnelvision.' Vinyl version includes an exclusive bonus track 'Your Eyes Spit.'"
