Luke Temple released new LP (streams), doing guest-filled NYC “improvisational” residency in December & other dates

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:
