David Bierman Overdrive
Standard Skies
(Gangplank)

If you were interested in what The Replacements were doing toward their end, or what the Goo Goo Dolls were doing at their beginning (don’t roll your eyes; Superstar Car Wash is a great garage rock album), you’re going to want to familiarize yourself Bierman’s new project. Formerly the frontman for the ’80s/’90s power pop/punk outfit Junk Monkeys, Bierman keeps the hooks and melodies afloat while plugging in some aching pedal steel that sounds like the dawn of alt-country, resulting in a flawless collection of tunes. Put some Cheap Trick, Old 97’s and Ninja Gun into a blender, hit puree, and you get one of the best albums this year, Standard Skies. (Tom Haugen)
