Here We Go Magic, 'Here We Go Magic' (Western Vinyl)

Critical Mass
Label:

by Barry Walters

It's a risky proposition when a largely unheard artist wraps himself in a newidentity that's clearly evocative of two trendy styles -- Panda Bear's Beach Boy–ish psychedelia and the Afro-pop revived by Vampire Weekend. But Brooklyn's Luke Temple possesses both an eerily high-pitched cry and a facility for his adopted grooves that makes the results far more distinctive than derivative. "Fangela" would work as a campfire lullaby, but here it ripples with high-speed harp arpeggios that undulate like a centipede's legs in an unearthly electronic jungle. Magic indeed.
