Kav Temperley talks ‘Machines of Love and Grace’, Eskimo Joe and Kyuss

Eskimo Joe frontman Kav Temperley is set to release his new solo album ‘Machines Of Love And Grace’ this week on October 19.

Written, recorded, and produced solo at his own Studio 42 in Fremantle, Machines Of Love And Grace is the following up to 2018’s All Your Devotion and explores themes of isolation, addiction, anxiety and other common relatable themes of the global pandemic.
Musically complex and dark at times, the record is some of Temperley’s best work to date and also most experimental due to the time allowed to carefully craft each track, it also features some guest appearances from friends such as Little Birdy’s Katy Steele and John Butler.

The Everblack Podcast spoke to Kav Temperley about his new solo album ‘Machines Of Love And Grace’, the inspirations behind the darkness in his music, 25 years of ESKIMO JOE and the early days of the band, love of Kyuss and his 90’s movie soundtrack inspired idea to bring Australian rock and rap together.
