Luke Temple & Eliot Krimsky Cover Curtis Mayfield’s “Suffer”, Album Release Show at LPR October 14

Today we present a pretty sweet gift to Luke Temple and Curtis Mayfield fans alike. Listen to Luke Temple and Here We Go Magic bandmate, Eliot Krimsky (also of Glass Ghost) cover Curtis Mayfield‘s “Suffer” ABOVE or on YouTube HERE.

The cover, originally part of Temple’s live show, is an appropriate preview of Luke’s new solo album, Good Mood Fool out October 15th. The new album shows Temple at his most minimalistic utilizing only his voice, a drum machine, a bass guitar, and a Juno-1 synth to produce the soulful and sultry sounds of his fifth solo album.

On the song, Temple says, “It’s nice to remind – and in some cases introduce – an amazing song to people. Curtis makes your heart sing even if it’s a song about regret.”

Pre-order Good Mood Fool now from SCD, Amazon, iTunes and your local record store.

To celebrate the new album, Temple will play a special album release show at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City on October 14th!

LSTN // Jens Lekman Releases Brand New Song – “Olivia & Maddy”

Jens Lekman has a brand new song for your listening pleasure. Tis no ordinary song; the backstory to this diddy is quite the tale. During Hurricane Sandy last November, Jens Lekman’s pianist, Jonas, was stuck in New York City with no way of getting to the West Coast to resume touring. Jens reached out to the world, asking if anyone could help get Jonas to Boston, where he could catch a flight. Two girls, Oliva and Maddy (THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU), ended up driving Jonas to Boston and in return for their kindness, Jens said he would write them a song! He’s made good on his promise and shared his new track, “Olivia & Maddy” – listen below! Read more about this heart-warming act on Jens’s blog, Small Talk.

LISTEN TO “OLIVIA & MADDY”

Jens Lekman kicks off his Australian tour on February 14 at Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory. You can see all his dates HERE.
