Weekly Music: New Luke Temple

Luke Temple, of one of my favorite bands Here We Go Magic, has a new solo album called Good Mood Fool (that title makes me smile) and it’s streaming over on Hype Machine. His last solo album was very stripped down and folk, whereas this is even a step past Here We Go Magic’s upbeat tempos with a more drum and synth sound. I’m still figuring out my exact feelings on the album, but I appreciate a musician that experiments with different sounds and I think he’s pulling it off well. Definitely give the album a spin, I especially dig the first track “Hard Working Hand.”
