Here We Go Magic’s Luke Temple has released numerous records, including last year’s A Hand Through the Cellar Door, under his own name, which has more or less served as a vessel for his more emotional, stripped-down songs. His latest music, however, wasn’t in line with that work, nor did it gel with the indie rock of his house band. Enter Art Feynman, a new alias for the ambitious songwriter.
As Art Feynman, Temple will release a brand new album, Blast Off Through the Wicker. It arrives this Friday, July 14th via Western Vinyl, and was inspired by the artist’s move from New York to the oceanside hamlet of Point Reyes.
In advance, Art Feynman has shared “Can’t Stand It”, a funky, psychedelic slice of afro-pop that evokes Here We Go Magic’s early work. Listen to it below.
