TITLE TIME

About Art Feynman

Around the time he switched coasts and settled down in Northern California in 2016, visual artist and indie singer/songwriter Luke Temple adopted the persona of animist musician Art Feynman. Feynman's first release, a six-minute instrumental track incorporating environmental sounds ("Rice") appeared on Bandcamp that spring. Obscuring his face in promotional material, he followed it a year later with the Krautrock-influenced stand-alone single "The Shape You're In," which addressed contemporary technology and politics. Recorded with a four-track tape recorder, the full-length Blast Off Through the Wicker arrived in July 2017 via Western Vinyl, which had issued albums by both solo Temple and his band Here We Go Magic. Feynman followed it with a U.S. tour in support of Stereolab's Laetitia Sadier, and dropped the Near Negative EP that December. ~ Marcy Donelson
