Trembling Hands

Alison Scarpulla

At some point in recent history, a certain in-the-know publication hailed The Temper Trap as the most important band to come out of Australia in the past decade. While I can't qualify that statement as I haven't heard every modem Australian band, I can tell you that they are undeniably talented, and prettttty catchy. Recently they've returned to the world stage with the release of their sophomore, self-titled LP. Trembling Hands is the first single off the album, and here gets the remix treatment by fellow Aussies - and one of LL's Bands To Watch - Strange Talk. Though there are a couple awkward beat progressions, the stomping bass lends a sense of urgency to the otherwise rather rueful piece.

Bonus: An old, and truly amazing, remix of their hit Love Lost by Holland's Keljet. It's one of my all-time favorites; don't spend another minute missing out.
