What we said:
Boasting guitar-work that turned The Edge
green with envy, and a chorus so epic it had Chris Martin
weeping into his wheatgrass smoothies for weeks, ‘Sweet Disposition
’ pretty much made The Temper Trap
in 2009. Despite a million sales (and counting), we’re pleased to report that the Aussie outfit aren’t content to retire on royalties just yet: they’re back with an extra member and a new long player. Their eponymous sophomore effort was written in London, recorded in LA with Beck
-producer Tony Hoffer, and offers up a load more epic, indie-rock that ought to help them augment their nest eggs nicely.
