Saturday’s Alright for Here We Go Magic

May 13th, 2011

Brooklyn’s Here We Go Magic began as a one-man band when singer-songwriter Luke Temple recorded a bunch of material at home on a four-track recorder over the course of two months. Those songs went on to become the well-received Here We Go Magic. But sometimes it’s more fun to do things with friends, so Temple added Michael Bloch on guitar, Peter Hale on drums, Kristina Lieberson on keys and Jennifer Turner on bass, and Here We Go Magic was suddenly a five-piece with a bigger, deeper sound. A second disc, Pigeons, followed in 2010, and the group released The January EP earlier this year. And now Here We Go Magic (above, doing “Collector” for KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic) brings cool psychedelic electro-folk to Mercury Lounge tomorrow night. You’d be wise to be there, too.
