Sebastien Grainger, 'Sebastien Grainger & the Mountains' (Saddle Creek)

Sebastien Grainger & the Mountains
Critical Mass
Label: Saddle Creek

by Stacey Anderson

Death From Above 1979 is DOA, and former bassist-synth dude Jesse F. Keeler (now of MSTRKRFT) apparently got custody of the dance-punk spazzitude, while drummer-singer Sebastien Grainger has embraced the devil-horned machismo. Grainger's solo efforts are more restrained than DFA 1979's sweaty frenzy, and ultimately, his blues-frilled rock would be pretty pallid if not for the playfully sarcastic undercurrents, though "I Hate My Friends" is the boisterous stadium rocker that Superchunk never wrote.
