In between making excellent music videos and picking up a hitchhiking John Waters with main band Here We Go Magic, Luke Temple has been making some deliriously great solo music. Here’s “Katie,” from Temple’s upcoming album Good Mood Fool. It’s a slightly unhinged but wonderful pop tune that bleeds ’80s kitsch in the best possible way. In this setting Temple plays around with the same blend of funk and kinkiness that Prince had mastered by Dirty Mind, and he sounds like he’s having a blast doing it. No surprise that he’s referred to the record as “the favorite thing I’ve made so far.” Listen below.
