Luke Temple – Don’t Act Like You Don’t Care [Album Review]

The eventseekr team had some awesome interns that regularly contributed to the blog this summer, but we also had awesome interns all throughout the office working in the other departments. We asked those who didn’t get a chance to contribute to write reviews of recent albums that struck their fancy. First was indie-rock group A Lull‘s Confetti, written up by Janelle Gleason, then Sharon Kim’s review of Cloud Control‘s Bliss Release, and most recently Lauren Espina’s review of Trap Gold‘s The Chooser EP. The fourth and final of these album reviews is Christina Galarnaeu’s review of Luke Temple‘s Don’t Act Like You Don’t Care.

Luke Temple originally made a splash in the indie-folk scene in 2004 when he was signed to Mill Pond Records, based in Seattle. His first full length album off Mill Pond, Hold a Match to a Gasoline World, was in line with the Northwestern indie scene, which was filled with sensitive and emotional youngsters with tattoos and piercings. In 2009 Temple decided to change his sound and released a full length album with his band, Here We Go Magic. His collaborative work has a much edgier and poppier sound than Temple’s soulful, soft solo work. Here We Go Magic’s Pigeons showcased a new side of Temple’s creative ability while he explored and expanded his musical portfolio. However, Temple kept to his folksy roots for his newly released solo album, Don’t Act Like You Don’t Care.
