This Song: Temples

Could it be that listening to Fats Domino’s “Blueberry Hill” at age 9 headed  Temples’ James Bagshaw  down a path that lead to recovering a lost PDA, school yard black market exchanges, revelations about the low fi aesthetic of the Strokes, a love of Frank Sinatra and a life of music? We’ll let you decide.
