Album: Here We Go Magic, Pigeons (Secretly Canadian)

Now expanded from Luke Temple's one-man operation into a bona fide five-piece band following the success of last year's debut album, Here We Go Magic hint at their sizeable potential with Pigeons, though the thinness of some of the ideas suggests they might have rushed to record too soon.

The stylistic touchstones here are minimalism, psychedelia, gamelan and Krautrock, with Temple's lyrics offering enigmatic phrases delivered in his high, pure tones. Opener "Hibernation" is a Terry Riley-esque organ shuffle that scuds along with casual urgency, while "Collector" runs cyclical guitar figures over a Neu!-beat. But elsewhere, "Moon" is industriously directionless, and "Surprise" an unhappy alliance between Pink Floyd keyboard washes and pedestrian indie-rock.
