iTunes Review

Melbourne’s celebrated epic pop act tore through 2009 on the strength of songs like “Sweet Disposition” and “Fader”. These snippets of cosmic alt-pop took them around the globe and now they’ve settled down for their second album. This self-titled effort luckily keeps the same spirit of woozy celebration throughout and is dominated by headstrong cuts like “London’s Burning”, “Need Your Love” and “Dreams” that spotlight the band’s powerhouse pop. Other moments like “Rabbit Hole” and “Miracle” scale back the glitz and showcase Dougie Mandagi’s elastic vocals and fragile eloquence.

Grows on you

Rock on

Give it a few listens then you realize what a great album it is.You can really see a new fresh experiential band with a great album.As opposed to this bland safe ready for MTV garbage without Soul. Trembling hands is brilliant with keyboards full of surprises and honest percussion and clean guitars this album draws you in and Dougies vocals are so original and at times haunting.

So good!

I've been streaming on triple j all week! Time to buy I think. Conditions was awesome but this is even better!

The Temper Trap released their debut EP that same year, and word of the group's potential soon spread to other continents. Veteran British producer Jim Abbiss (who previously worked on the Arctic Monkeys' debut) saw enough promise in the Temper Trap's material to fly to Australia,...
