Here We Go Magic - Tunnelvision
Escapism, in the pure sense of the word, is something I always strive to have when listening to my ‘chilled’ music. Few musicians can manage to give me this sensation in their music, however Here We Go Magic are one of those special bands who manage to portray soundscapes that are greater than the sum of their individual instruments to allow for a transcendental listen.
I just came across Tunnelvision, a gem from their debut 2009 self-titled album. I’m off to check out more of their music and to fall in love with their back catalogue.
Here We Go Magic have just recently obtained their goal to fund a live EP that features some of their performances in European cities on their 2012 tour, so keep out an eye for that project by pledging exclusively here.

Here We Go Magic - Make Up Your Mind
Groove oozes from the latest single of Luke Temple’s project Here We Go Magic.
I always thought the song was funky, fast and psychadelic but the video just takes things to a whole new level.
For starters, we have Temple dressed like Freddy Mercury in the dark with sunnies on, wearing a leather vest and practicing a form of voodoo on unsuspecting lolitas in their knickers! The girls’ (asphyxia-induced?) contortions are disturbing and you do feel like a bit of a pervert watching as these girls squirm, heave and shake uncontrollably around on the floor while Temple lewdly gesticulates towards the camera.
But then you the song is too good to stop watching and it is actually a refreshing departure from the majority of music videos around at the moment.
Here We Go Magic are due to release their upcoming album A Different Ship on May 8th. The sound of the Brooklyn based band has developed so much in the last few years and I think we’ll be in for a treat when it is released. For now, enjoy Make Up Your Mind.
