iTunes Editors’ Notes

Kettering, England’s Temples bring the psychedelic ‘60s to life. Just as the members of XTC once worked as The Dukes of Stratosphear to re-create a psychedelic glow of backward guitars, groovy organs, sitar-like 12-string guitars, thick rumbling basses, and oddly modulating harmonies all wrapped up in fuzztones, Temples now explore those sounds like “Jack Nitzsche on a DIY budget.” That's according to group leader and guitarist James Bagshaw, whose home served as the recording studio for Sun Structures. Praise from The Smiths’ Johnny Marr and The Soft Machine’s Robert Wyatt indicate they’re on the right track, and lysergic pop songs like “The Golden Throne” and “Mesmerise” illustrate how well this quartet can explore the outer reaches of their minds. Elements of Nuggets and Pebbles collections and countless late-'60s lesser-knowns come to life with a dense, modern production that lets Bagshaw and Co. layer the sound with great intricacy. Whether it’s the jam (“Test of Time”) or the milder side of the ride (“Move with the Season”), welcome back to the future again.
