Here We Go Magics Be Small, out October 16th on Secretly Canadian, is streaming now via Noisey accompanied by an in-depth interview with the band. The new album finds HWGM taking a smaller approach to production and finding more intimate soundscapes but hosts no less acrobatics of musicianship and singular sonic ambition. Over six years and, now, four albums, HWGM has always found its own, idiosyncratic path through fidgety prog-rock, bliss-pop and sound collage experimentations with a heavy focus on groove. You can hear how these songs likely began as Luke Temples bedroom folk riffs, but where they ultimately end up here with the help of longtime HWGM collaborator and multi-instrumentalist Michael Bloch, as well as Austin Vaughn on drums is near-transcendent and celestial.

HWGM has become a real poets poet among NYC musicians and bands. And its clear why. You can watch their hands and movements all you want. You can try and count out the time signatures. But youre almost always left dumbfounded as to how their songs with those seemingly simple jagged, syncopated licks and floating melodies developed from Point A to Point B, where all is a swirl of sound and emotion and groove, jaw-on-the-floor stuff. In these times, where easy answers are a click away, we need this sort of thing more than we know, to be made, again, into babies amazed at the wondrous mobile spinning above us.
