The poor guy is probably sick of references to his work in the now-defunct dance-punk band Death from Above 1979, but it’s hard not to be curious just how much Sebastien Grainger‘s live sound has changed since the group split and he went solo. If the forthcoming Sebastien Grainger and The Mountains, out October 21, is any indication, the compulsion to shred a soundsystem is still there, just wrapped in a slightly more refined package.

Grainger will do three performances at next week’s CMJ Marathon, then will hit the road proper at the end of November.
