Grainger's debut solo effort Sebastien Grainger and the Mountains, meanwhile, ventures down a more conventional rock path with tracks built loosely on the singer-songwriter template. Of course, that term conjures unpleasant notions of watered-down Dylanisms (or worse), but Grainger isn't a neo-folkie (though signing to Saddle Creek might further the misconception). He's simply fleshed out his own song sketches with power-pop and, occasionally, 1970s arena rock to create a batch of high-energy, radio-friendly tunes. Had Grainger chosen to stick with this direction, Mountains would be perfectly listenable (if unoriginal), but unfortunately the album's strong lot ends with "American Names". On the bulk of the remaining songs, he shows an odd tendency for lopsidedness- songs with capable choruses but plodding, asymmetrical verses.

Following his short run with Death from Above 1979, Sebastien Grainger opted to take the solo route, nixing his former band's hip-hop and punk influences for a combination of swaggering dance rock (think Head Automatica without the trashy glitz) and singer/songwriter material. Love Is Not a Contest" is a genuine piano ballad, featuring Grainger's earnest, processed vocals and keyboard flourishes from the Stills' Liam O'Neil.

The question is: if Grainger can write hook-heavy, arena-loving tunes like this - and there's hardly a track on this album that doesn't barrel along melodically - why hasn't he done it before? One to ponder. In the meantime, it's possible to enjoy this album without registering much about it, such is the muscular efficiency with which one song succeeds the next. Renegade Silence does stand out, though, by virtue of being a dancefloor shuffle with falsetto vocals, and on the slacker ballad Love Is Not a Contest, Grainger slows down for the first and only time.

Summary: Sebastien Grainger, the Ex-Death from Above 1979 singer/drummer, releases his debut solo album. Record Label: Saddle Creek. Genre(s): Indie, Rock. Grainger's first solo outing swaps the lascivious intensity of his former outfit for a rakish new wave ramalam somewhere between Cheap Trick and The Strokes' "First Impression of Earth.
