Temples‘ debut album ‘Sun Structures‘ is at number one on this week’s UK Record Store Chart, displacing Bombay Bicycle Club who drop to #3 with ‘So Long, See You Tomorrow‘.

Elsewhere Broken Bells, Maximo Park, Mogwai and London Grammar also retain places inside the Top 10, while the publicity surrounding Queen‘s first Greatest Hits collection becoming the first album in the UK to sell more than six million copies appears to have sparked some renewed interest – the compilation is at #23 this week.
