Here We Go Magic Make Rull Purrty Moosic

Vodpod videos no longer available.

You can tell singer/song writer Luke Temple likes to keep things enigmatic, between his current moniker, Here We Go Magic, his bare-bones MySpace page, and this shimmering, abstract video for “Tunnelvision” off his latest album, I feel fairly confident in asserting this guy plays it close to the chest.  According to YouTube, this video was shot with a super 8 camera, nails and paint with no post production on the outskirts of some god-forsaken lake in the Catskills.  The song it self is a fragile piece of  folk  as ancient as the mountains, tumbling along with pounding drums and background chantings that sound like a group of people in the woods speaking in tongues.  The only lyrics I can pick out is the well pronounced and syncopated “anything–is–poss–ible,” making me, for the first time in a while,actually feel optimistic about whatever (how’s THAT for optimism).  Lucky for Pittsburgh (which I can tell needs a huge pick me up before the cluster fuck that is St. Patrick’s Day), Temple brought a backing band to tour under the name Here We Go Magic and will be playing the Garfield Artworks with Callers on March 9th at 8:00.
