MP3: New Here We Go Magic - "Make Up Your Mind," New Album


Our favorite indie jam band Here We Go Magic have been quietly releasing great records and fantastic singles at a steady pace for the past few years, and they’re not letting up in 2012: their third record A Different Ship, slated for a May 8 release on Secretly Canadian, boasts production assistance from Radiohead collaborator Nigel Godrich and a great first single “Make Up Your Mind,” which you can download for the price of your email address.

The band effortlessly lock into a typically mesmerizing tight, Kraut-y groove from second 0:01, grooving relentlessly even through a soaring chorus of Luke Temple’s clear croon and sharp, droning planes of ‘80s new-wave synth. The closest we can get to a summary of the end product is Fear of Music-era Talking Heads in space, which doesn’t begin to do the song justice. Check it out while you wait for the album.
