David Sandstrom Overdrive
Holy crap, how did I sleep on this? Looking on facebook for the drummer for the Refused, because I was thoroughly impressed with his drumming, I stumbled across the man's band. If you're expecting the Refused, it won't happen. But, if you want absolutely wonderful pop rock in the vein of Elvis Costello, mixed with Elliott Smith, a dash of Wilco, with the Jam somehow involved, you have to track down his releases. Amazing stuff, really. Nothing like the Refused, but in a world where the Refused never existed, I'd still want this. Such beautiful music, and I had no idea.
