Luke Temple’s been churning out music under his given name for over fifteen years now, with a notable deviation between 2009 and 2015 releasing records with Here We Go Magic, and again in 2017, releasing his first album under the eccentric pseudonym Art Feynman. Looks like 2020’s set to be another year for new Feynman music, as Temple announced LP two at the beginning of the month—Half Price at 3:30 will arrive in June via Western Vinyl.
Today we’re getting the second single from the record, and the second story from the troubadour Temple embodies for the project. “The Physical Life of Marilyn” tells the story of someone making the tough decision whether to break things off with a romantic partner or not, considering the ticking of their biological clock and the decreasing likelihood of her being able to get pregnant.
Musically it’s as unique as anything we’ve come to expect from Temple, who drowns out the sound of his Auto-Tuned voice with clattering electronic instrumention. The track escalates into surreal territory, before signing off with programmed guitar noodling. Stream it below.
Half Price at 3:30 is out June 26 via Western Vinyl—you can pre-order it here.
