We are pleased to announce that alongside Temples live return to the UK this winter, the band have announced details of ‘Sun Restructured.’ A re-animation of their critically acclaimed debut album, ‘Sun Structures’ by Beyond The Wizard Sleeve’s Erol Alkan and Richard Norris, it is due for release on Monday November 10th.
Beyond The Wizard Sleeve have re-worked hit single ‘Shelter Song’ as well as album tracks ‘A Question Isn’t Answered,’ ‘Golden Throne,’ ‘Sand Dance’ and forthcoming single, the last to be lifted from their record, ‘Move With The Season.’ The kaleidoscopic journey of 42 minute is interwoven with tweaked and warped snatches of other ‘Sun Structures’ tracks too.
Describing the record, Erol Alkan has said:
“Being asked to re-animate a whole album’s worth of material is an honour. We (in return) wanted to create something special. A record which could be listened to in one go, from start to finish, a listening experience that is becoming increasingly rare. So as well as a host of full Beyond The Wizards Sleeve re-animations here, there are interludes, ambience, ebb and flow…each section flowing int a bigger piece…There is so much happening under the surface of Sun Structures, and deep within each track, it was a pleasure to dive in and see what we could find. it inspired us to pick up our guitars, plug in our synthesisers and add some wizardry on top. Enjoy this trip. And it is a trip.”
‘Sun Restructured’ will be available as part of a deluxe CD and download re-issue package with the original album as well as a special limited Vinyl.
As ‘Sun Structures’ was one of Rough Trade Stores biggest selling records of the year, ‘Sun Restructured’ is available to purchase via their store (UK & NYC) or online:
It has also been announced that Superfood will be supporting the band on their forthcoming winter tour.
Reviews of the bands critically acclaimed debut:
“’Sun Structures’ tapestry drifts effortlessly before the ears, presenting a sustained grandeur of Temples’ vision, lyrics and musicality”
This Is Fake DIY
“A truly mesmerising debut album… James Bagshaw’s crooning vocals take you on a stroll along an LA beach, which climaxes around an English campfire, at Stonehenge, on the Summer Solstice… It’s the sound of ’60s experimentation smashed stunningly into the present day.”
“Twelve shiny nuggets of pure psychedelic pop genius, stamped with the band’s own identity”
Louder Than War
“Retro futurism par excellence… Temples [have] truly mastered the sonic tics of psychedelia”
“A clear reminder of how we fell in love with these guys in the first place… A brilliant debut… If all 2014 psych releases are like this one, it’s going to be one hell of a year.”
