Brooklyn’s Here We Go Magic treated the small few to an acoustic set at Red Eye Records promoting their tour with Grizzly Bear not too long ago. I wasn’t quite sure what to make of their last album but I went to feed my curiosity – you could say that ‘I’ve got a mild fascination.’

Acoustic sets are a no-bullshit context, as songs are stripped bare with nothing to hide. It highlights the bands true essence and in the quintet’s case, the intricately layered vocal melodies, Luke Temple’s song-writing genius and subtle tribal rhythms are yep, all real. The quick 6-song set was delightful especially during the songs “Tunnelvision” and “Casual”.
It was clear Here We Go Magic is a relaxed yet tight band and I left Red Eye with their psychedelic-pop encouraging me to give Pigeons one more go.
