Here We Go Magic

Hello blogosphere! Here is your new boyfriend! Or girlfriend. His name is Here We Go Magic, the brainchild of Luke Temple. The self-titled album was recorded over two months on his own analog equipment all in his own Brooklyn bedroom.
What’s got me hooked are the beats. Ethnic drumbeats to be precise. Here’s what the press release says:

Many of the songs pulse with infectious afro-beat and kraut-rock influenced grooves, calling to mind classic albums like Remain in Light and Graceland.

Okay? Does that sound awesome or what? Just wait to you actually hear the music. It’s gorgeous. I will take this over Animal Collective any day, thank you.
You can hear the track “Tunnelvision” at Fader. And hear two other songs at their Myspace.

If you live on the east coast you can see them play with Department of Eagles:
01/17 Philadelphia, PA Johnny Brenda’s
01/18 Cambridge, MA The Brattle Theatre
01/19 New York, NY Bowery Ballroom
