EDITORS’ NOTES

The Temper Trap introduced its driving, textural tunes to the world with the release 2009’s Conditions. A rejoinder to classic U2, “Sweet Disposition” is a modern stadium rock hymn: shivering, surging, and urgent. Dougy Mandagi proves to be one of modern music’s most capable vocalists, from the falsetto peaks of “Rest" to the howls of “Drum Song.” “Soldier On” is a spare, skeletal lullaby. Meanwhile, “Resurrection” builds slowly before bursting into total release, like a quivering flame magnified into an inferno.
