The Temperance Movement: White Bear
Nuanced blues rockers’ follow-up to ￼￼￼their acclaimed 2013 debut.
It’s fair to say The Temperance Movement are something of a throwback. It’s hardly surprising that the Rolling Stones invited the band to support them – they inhabit the eternal soundworld of the sleazy 60s and soaraway 70s, of Eric Clapton and Argent, of tight songs and tight trousers.
Still, even a pathological sworn enemy of traditional rock’n’roll would have to concede that The Temperance Movement do what they do with a rare and exquisite panache. They’re no mere barroom honkers.
