Best Time for a Nap: The Temper Trap

Australian indie rock band the Temper Trap has had a sleepy sound from the moment we were introduced to them with 2008's "Sweet Disposition." The song was the centerpiece on the (500) Days of Summer soundtrack and featured in countless commercials with its subtle, driving sound beneath Dougy Mandagi's soothing falsetto. This year marks the band's third feature on the Lolla line-up but second time playing after getting rained out in 2012. With the addition of some of their soon-to-be-released new material to their setlist, the Temper Trap were a mostly bland mid-afternoon set with only a couple of highlights, like 2012's "Trembling Hands," a quick and surprising cover of the Clash's "Rock the Casbah" and, of course, "Sweet Disposition." Beneath the mid-afternoon sun, the band was a perfect excuse for a snooze before getting a prime spot for headliners Outkast.
