Best Thing Ever: Luke Temple Covers "Doctor Robert"

This week's edition of IGIF's "Thursdays and Covers" feature contained this overlooked gem, Here We Go Magic's Luke Temple doing a languid glitched-out rendition of "Doctor Robert" for Mojo Magazine's early-aughts tribute to Revolver.

The most immediate reference would seem to be Karl Blau's so-weird-it-works Dance Positive, sharing that record's paring of lazy basement synths with clickity-clackity percussion and miscellaneous electronic gurgles filling in the negative space. It's oddly compelling, and if nothing else brings renewed appreciation for the original melody's airtight brilliance.
