>So I have no good excuse why I haven’t posted in over a month. It’s been a whirlwind of a summer, and I’m still getting used to this blogging thing. I have been voraciously consuming a few tracks on the Temper Trap album, and while I’ve yet to see them live (shenanigans at Squatch and then $80 scalper tix when they came to Seattle have prevented it thus far), I have great hopes for their show.
The Aussie band has been on tour recently, doing shows across the US (Seattle, Sasquatch and Lollapalooza among them). Interestingly enough, they’re meeting up and will be performing with The Pixies in Mexico this October. Now THAT’S the show to see.
I know Fader and Sweet Disposition (my fav of the two most popular) have been radio hits, but I am diggin on Love Lost. The song intros with the organ and clapping leads us into to Dougy Mandagi’s airy lead vocals and then a great beat laid by the drums and guitar. The video, featuring at first a solo boy, then group of boys running through the rain, is quite appropes. The whole song is fantastic to run to – maybe not for tearing up a 100m, but a fantastic three and a half minute portion of your 5k.
