[SLACKER  ROCK] Battleme isn’t strictly for biker dramas anymore. Frontman Matt Drenik has expanded his once-solo project since penning a couple of tunes for the second season of  FX’s Sons of Anarchy, issuing two albums of pensive retro-rock teaming with brawny guitars and Drenik’s husky croon. Future Runs Magnetic, the band’s last LP, arrived with a more cohesive sound. Tracks like “Nights on the Stand” sit in a bed of stripped beats and sinewy guitar, before imploding in a brief cacophony of rattling distortion and drums. Opener “Just Weight” hits the ground running, with a punk-rock touch and lyrics ruminating on the unsung fragility of time.
