See Here We Go Magic Before They Go OverseasJuly 18th, 2012
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. Since then, the group has played big festivals, like Bonnaroo and Glastonbury, and released more material: Pigeons in 2010, The January EP last year and the critically acclaimed A Different Ship (stream two songs from the album below) this past May. And before heading to Australia and then Europe, Here We Go Magic (above, doing “Make Up Your Mind” at this year’s Bonnaroo) plays a hometown show tomorrow at Music Hall of Williamsburg.
