Vintage Cafe With Temples - One Of Our Fave Performances of 2014

Our Vintage Cafe today comes from February 2014 when we were joined by the young British band Temples. They had just released their debut album Sun Structures. Guitarist James Edward Bagshaw and bassist Thomas Edison Warmsley formed the band in 2012 and are joined by keyboard player Adam Smith and drummer Sam Toms. The band created a very good psychedelic album that brings styles from past decades seamlessly into the present. Is Sun Structures one of the best albums of 2014? Our Vintage Cafe replay subtly asks that you put them back into consideration!
