    Default Sebastien Grainger and The Mountains

    Everything from Weezer to Cheap Trick comes to mind on this solo debut from a drummer of all people, especially with the breezy opener Love Can Be So Me. Filled with churning guitars and a glorious keyboard hook, the track is a far cry from the dirge discord of his DFA 1979 output.
    American Names is a fist-pumper corralled with Grainger's overwhelming croons, hand claps and sliced riffs, (I am Like A) River centers on his gravelly delivery and new-wave past. Because of all the disparity, the record seems to lose focus at times, but ultimately never wavers from its anthemic manifesto. Cock-rock solos fill in tracks like I Hate My Friends, but S.G. can still offer sobering, sad bastard tales a'la Leonard Cohen, as on the piano-driven Love is Not a Contest.

    Grainger's passionate vocals and angsty disposition, not to mention the melodic soundtrack, is a welcome return by a man whose former band flamed out well before their time. A real surprise disc, and rising high in my best of '08 list.
