Luke Temple

While he's spent the last few years concentrating on Here We Go Magic, Luke Temple recently returned to solo mode with Good Mood Fool which was released a couple weeks ago via Secretly Canadian. On it, he bathes in warm funk and gentle reggae, giving things an enjoyably mellow vibe. You can check out the video for "Florida" and a couple other tracks below, and the whole record can be heard via Spotify.

Temple is currently finishing up a short East Coast tour with his band that includes Eliot Krimsky (Glass Ghost, Here We Go Magic), Mike Johnson (Dirty Projectors) and Brian Betancourt (Hospitality). He'll then head to Europe but on his return he's doing a December residency at Union Pool, playing the first three Tuesdays of the month. He's gathered some pretty impressive talent to open on the nights:

DECEMBER 3 (tickets)
ELLIOT KRIMSKY
MEMS (5) - (Ofir Ganon and Greg Sarnier of Deerhoof)
CHRIS BEAR (of Grizzly Bear)
LUKE TEMPLE

DECEMBER 10 (tickets)

DECEMBER 17 (tickets)

JEREMY GUSTIN AND INDIGO STREET (of Delicate Steve)

As a unifying theme, all of the sets during the residency will be improvised. No word on advance tickets just yet. Ticket links above. All tour dates are listed, along with videos and streams, below.

What i don't understand is how we continue to reward Law Enforcement with promotions, resources and pay. Despite all of the swat teams, massive funding and unlimited laws and resources the police have utterly failed to stop drugs. Any city, any country you can go out and get high.
