John Grant

Ex-Czars pied piper John Grant appears here for his debut solo effort, a collection of playful, lyrical oddities of deeply personal ballads and reflections of Grant’s outcast childhood in a religious upbringing. The superficial, off-the-wall pop culture references (“Sigourney Weaver”) might stick genuinely for those with a quirky sense of humor, but others may get a sinking feeling in the tummy. Luckily, Grant’s more-than-capable voice and the always warm and welcome Midlake as backup help the medicine go down. BREANNA MURPHY
