After a bit of a wait, due to the product arriving at the warehouse unassembled, my limited Cloudy Blue vinyl edition, of Temples new LP, Exotico has arrived! And oh what a revelation this Sean Ono Lennon produced masterpiece is! Upon first listen, I was a bit off put, by the seemingly murkiness in the production. But, as the sonic layers began to unpeel themselves, and especially upon repeated listens, the pure, stellar, songwriting, and the genius of the project overall envelops the listener. I am particularly struck by the last side of the LP. Time is a Light, and Fading Actor are just sublime examples of songwriting brilliance. Personally, I believe Temples are the most important band in the world currently. The heir to Blur, Muse, and any other British exponent of retro/proto-psychedelia music. Exotico confirms this in no uncertain terms, it is their masterpiece.
