Here We Go Magic may be one of the most impressive live bands you'll ever see. Throughout the past three years, they've refined their craft for rhythm, creating a sonic landscape on stage that makes jaws drop and bodies move. The results are bombastic and genre-defying, although one reviewer recently coined their style as a blend of kraut folk rock, and that might be the closest we'll get to an appropriate description.
The brainchild of guitar virtuoso Luke Temple, Here We Go Magic started as a dreamy bedroom project in 2009 and morphed quickly into a full ensemble, putting out one of the more critically acclaimed records of 2010, Pigeons. With the help of famed producer, engineer and musician Nigel Godrich, Here We Go Magic got a well-rounded treatment for their latest effort A Different Ship. The record is a strong imitation of their live performance, sharply changing between major and minor keys, full jam-outs, quiet builds and the calculated fluctuations of Temple's trademark voice.
Songs performed: "Make Up Your Mind," "How Do I Know" and "I Believe In Action"
