Here We Go Magic spent the better part of 2011 putting together “A Different Ship” with producer Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Beck). The resulting album is sunny and spacious, with “How Do I Know” as its molten core. With its instantly hummable refrain, the song builds layer by layer from a simple guitar-vocals-drums combo into a swirling symphony of glorious noise.

The disc is backed with “My Plate’s on Fire” – an outtake from the band’s recording sessions with Godrich. The fuzzy drone creeps steadily along under singer Luke Temple’s falsetto and demonstrates the range of this remarkable band.

“…in the heady pulse of standouts like ‘How Do I Know’ or ‘Hard to Be Close,’ you can get a much clearer understanding for why a Here We Go Magic live experience was and is potent enough to send guys like Yorke and Godrich into early morning spasms. Their many gifts are on full display here, in their finest light.” – SPIN

“How Do I Know b/w My Plate’s On Fire” will be released digitally on April 10th, 2012 with a physical 7″ in stores on May 22nd.
