Thee More Shallows frontman Dee Kesler spends a good deal of time working out his studio obsessions on his trio’s third album, Book of Bad Breaks. Songs like “The Dutch Fist” and “Night at the Knight School” combine buzzing guitars, oblique lyrics, and stop-start rhythms -- sorta like a less art-damaged Pavement or Modest Mouse, without the corporate budget. The San Francisco-based group clearly loves the sound of sounds. And Kesler has a grand time mixing and matching them. The cheap Casio keyboard squalls provide quite a rush, but so does the band’s blend of bleary-eyed electronics and thundering drums.
