Temper Trap, Blue Giant and Butterfly Bones


Roseland (map) Northwest
Sat., Aug. 14, 8 p.m. 2010 All Ages

Aussie alt-rock behemoths the Temper Trap straddle that difficult middle ground of radio-friendly pop acts that don't deserve to be showered in pigeon feces (your Kings of Leon), yet are certainly not cut to claim their place in the upper echelons (Radiohead). Their Conditions LP is composed of two types of songs—those that are already hits, or those that will be hits six months from now once the airwaves cease being clogged by constant spins of "Sweet Disposition." This means the music of the Temper Trap is about to become pretty ubiquitous, but don't fight it. At worst they become another embarrassing landmark in your musical travels (like that three-week span when you swore David Gray was the greatest thing ever), and at best you get to hear "Sweet Disposition" a few thousand more times.
