Luke Temple’s Both-And was made during the winter and spring of 2018. It’s a record best put on and not directly listened to. Sweep your floor, do your dishes, let the thwack of your hard heels while you’r’e walking to get your laundry become a wood block too loud in the mix. It’s a record much like a day, things come and go, sometimes heavy, sometimes light, sometimes with poetic continuity and sometimes with abrupt groundlessness.

Both-And is a record encompassing both the beautiful and the jarring, both the bright pop-hooks of Temple’s work with Here We Go Magic and a thrilling experimental bent with songs looking directly at living within time passing. At times it’s as if a Talk Talk live recording session floated afterwards into a Buenos Aires square in springtime, with ecstatic nods to the West Marin landscape where Temple resides throughout.

“ ‘Wounded Brightness,’ the lead single from Temple’s forthcoming album Both-And, refracts his earliest Sufjan Stevens-meets-Timothy Leary freak-folk through a mature, bossa nova prism.” -Paste

“His voice is both whispery and confident, raspy and smooth, close and distant — essentially placing him alongside other entrancing singer-songwriters like Alexi Murdoch or José González.” -Consequence of Sound
