LISTEN // Here We Go Magic Streams ‘Be Small’ Via Noisey

SC315

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.

LISTEN // Here We Go Magic Share “Tokyo London US Korea,” Fall Tour Dates

Screen Shot 2015-10-01 at 9.50.10 AM

Here We Go Magic are happy to share the latest track, “Tokyo London US Korea,” taken from their upcoming album, Be Small, out October 16th on Secretly Canadian. “Tokyo London US Korea” is an off-kilter track with a meandering guitar line and potent syncopation, but as Luke Temple explains, the lyrics and the music exist in juxtaposition, “Its very linear and dark at the same time… we only like to think and talk about the things and places that everyone else is thinking and talking about the funny little story of man.” Accompany the track is a video directed by Dick Black who says, “It’s a video about walking fish. And everything is going to be ok.

Recorded and mixed by Here We Go Magic themselves, the “overtly major and optimistic” songs on Be Small are a big leap from the live, expansive sounds of 2012’s Nigel Godrich-produced A Different Ship. Inspired by the likes of Brian Eno and John Cale’s collaborative album, Wrong Way Up, and Robert Wyatt’s Schleep, this is an album of robust future pop that still continues its route through HWGM’s inimitable path of fidgety prog-rock, blissful melodies and sound collage experimentations but always with a focus on a deep groove.

LISTEN // Here We Go Magic Share “Ordinary Feeling,” Fall Tour Dates

SC315-HWGM-FC-HR-1425

Here We Go Magic‘s fourth studio album, Be Small, finds the band taking a smaller approach to production and finding more intimate soundscapes, but hosts no less acrobatics of musicianship and a singular sonic ambition. Recorded and mixed entirely by the band, Be Small‘s songs are a big leap from the live, expansive sounds of 2012’s Nigel Godrich-produced A Different Ship. Its an album of robust future pop that still continues its route through Here We Go Magic‘s inimitable path of fidgety prog-rock, blissful melodies and sound collage experimentations, but always with a focus on a deep groove. You can hear how these songs likely began as Luke Temple’s bedroom folk riffs, but where they ultimately end up is near transcendent and celestial. Today, the band is sharing the more contemplative and restrained Ordinary Feeling, a slow, swooning burn, and an equally fulfilling taste of Be Small following upbeat debut single, “Falling.

Here We Go Magic’s Be Small is out October 16th on Secretly Canadian, and available for pre-order now. All digital pre-orders come with instant free downloads of Falling” and “Ordinary Feeling.” Catch the band all over North America this fall.

WATCH // Here We Go Magic Announces ‘Be Small,’ Shares Video For “Falling”, Summer Tour Dates

SC315-HWGM-FC-HR-1425
Here We Go Magic return with Be Small, an album that finds the band taking a smaller approach to production and finding more intimate soundscapes, but hosts no less acrobatics of musicianship and singular sonic ambition. Recorded and mixed entirely by the band and inspired by Brian Eno and John Cales Wrong Way Up and Robert Wyatts Shleep, Be Smalls overtly major and optimistic” songs, as described by band leader Luke Temple, are a big leap from the live, expansive sounds of 2012’s Nigel Godrich-produced A Different Ship. Its an album of robust future pop that still continues its route through Here We Go Magics inimitable path of fidgety prog-rock, blissful melodies and sound collage experimentations, but always with a focus on a deep groove.

Debut single and pulsating album standout, “Falling,” builds upon arpeggiated, satellite signal synths and joyous, interlocked acoustic strums and fuzzed guitar. It gathers momentum with each phrase about falling in love (though it’s unclear if this is a thing to be celebrated or dreaded) until the whole affair suddenly halts into a nothingness that sounds like a Gregorian chant from the bottom of a wishing well. Watch the video below for the debut single, directed by Sam Kuhn.

Here We Go Magics Be Small is out October 16th on Secretly Canadian, and available for pre-order now. All digital pre-orders come with an instant free download of Falling. Catch Here We Go Magic all over Europe and North America this fall. All dates are below.
