Sebastien Grainger - 'Yours To Discover'

Album Info

  • Release Date: November 18, 2013
  • Label: Last Gang
5 / 10 The Death From Above 1979 reunion is on ice for now, so it’s only right that the band’s 34-year-old singer and drummer Sebastian Grainger keeps releasing solo material. He’s got things to say, and these things are mostly: I’m horny, I’m getting old, I drink too much. So on the sleazy Michael Jackson of ‘Your Body Works’ we get “Oh let’s go to bed now, and let our bodies do the work, I know what’s coming over you”; the acoustic Crystal Castles of ‘I’m Looking For A Hand’ is all “Hair is getting grey and it’s thinning, maybe”; and the Strokes-gone-disco ‘Waking Up Dead’ asks: “Did I say something wrong last night? I dunno, I was wasted”. It’s spunkier than 2008’s ‘Sebastian Grainger & The Mountains’, but still meek in comparison to DFA 1979.
