Western Vinyl:

"Until now, Art Feynman has strictly been a solo act, a way for Temple to explore surprising sonic landscapes without the burdens of identity. Slightly twisted takes on Kosmische musik, worldbeat, and art pop can be found scattered across the Art Feynman discography, but with Be Good The Crazy Boys, Temple fully immerses himself into pools of collective madness.

After living in NYC for two decades, Luke Temple moved to a rural part of Northern California for six years in which the first two Art Feynman records were made. It served as a needed decompression. Due to some unexpected life changes, Temple moved to Los Angeles spawning a flurry of writing and wanted to play the new music live. Temple booked a residency at the Permanent Records Roadhouse which went better than expected and made very clear the music needed to be recorded.

Unlike the first two Art Feynman albums, Be Good The Crazy Boys was recorded live in-studio with a full band. The result captures a spirit of restless anxiety, and recalls the most frenetic work by Talking Heads, or Oingo Boingo at their darkest. "Sonically, I was inspired by records that were recorded at the late Compass Point Studios in the Bahamas such as Grace Jones' 'Private Life,' Lizzy Mercier Descloux's Mambo Nassau, and Talking Heads' Remain in Light."Despite these callbacks, Be Good The Crazy Boys remains firmly rooted in modern concerns, with songs about fearing the end of the world and struggling with FOMO — narratives that would be relatable if they didn't sound so completely unhinged.

With Be Good The Crazy Boys, Art Feynman proves to be more than just a character. He represents the part of the modern, consciousness that's struggling to maintain collective balance in a toxic, chaotic world. In less skilled hands, that concept could result in a very somber listen., when Art Feynman gets his hands on the chaos of the modern age, it simply makes you want to dance.

“To me,” Temple explains, “there was a lot of energy that needed to be released as the result of living in isolation for six years. It also seems to speak to a general anxiety we're all holding, but it's expressed in a cathartic way.” It's this acknowledgment of general anxiety that separates Feynman from the other fictional personas that have been cropping up in the music world lately. Feynman doesn't sound suave, confident, or even heartbroken in these songs; it sounds like he's on the verge of a panic attack.
