Obsession: The Temper Trap

The Temper Trap – “Resurrection

J’adore Le Temper Trap. Really, I do.  And it was as much of a surprise to me as it probably is to you. For one, I typically loathe male falsetto vocals.  I don’t know why, I just do.  But The Temper Trap is different and the sole exception in this category.  Lead singer Dougie Mandagi’s falsetto voice is beyond comparison and in a realm unto it’s own. Their debut LP, Conditions, has ruled my airwaves for many months now. And finally, the Melbourne-based band that has won over Europe and Australia is headed our way.  They are scheduled to play San Francisco’s The Fillmore on March 12.  I suggest you get tickets and see fame in the making.
