Here We Go Magic is a psych/synth project by folk singer Luke Temple. If you like chillwave or bands like the Dirty Projetors, you may like HWGM. This EP departs quite a bit from their previous stuff; it is much more spacey, relatively sparse, and arguably more conventional. It's still a unique mishmash of off-key instrumentals, vocals, and synths.
6 for spacey. 5, 3 for rock. Others are playable depending on your tastes. No FCCs detected
RIYL: Sin Fang, Le Loup, John Vanderslice, Animal Collective (kinda)

4:19 Syncopated guitars throughout. Very alt rock-y with interludes of psych mixed in.
4:41 Falsetto vocals with building shimmering synths. Moments almost have a bossa-nova feel. Super chill, vocals sound exactly like John Vanderslice
3:41 poppy piano riffs combined with swirling synths. Vocals match up with the piano and synth, if that makes sense. Another chill song but it incorporates more rock
2:00 Sparse guitar plucking with a smooth falsetto chanting “hollywood.” Haunting and pretty
2:39* Indie rock. Lyrics and rhythm are much more urgent. Great slightly off-key vocals
3:43* Melancholic crooning over sparse and psych-y instrumentals. There's an interesting march-like drumbeat moving this. A very reflective and swirly track, also a bit ghostly. My favorite
