He's THAT GUY from THAT BAND Grandaddy
Heard ^this on the radio to day.
Tis streaming here;
I was super fucking excited for this album but after one spin it's not as good as Yours Truly, The Commuter. It's Jason though and I absolutely love more or less everything about the way this man goes about things so I shall listen to it again and again till it sticks.
Your Final Setting Sun however is fucking brilliant from the off, as is the whacky video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0N9A123g52U
I defer to your bigger fan-ness.
and so underrated.
Just stuck it on the turntable for the first time in ages because of this post. I loved the Admiral Radley album he did with Earlimart too, had some great stuff on it.
Sounding absolutely fantastic up to now. I think Jason Lytle might be one of my favourite men in music.
It still lacks the diversity and imagination he shows when he puts out a Grandaddy record. I can't help feeling that he's playing it too safe with these solo albums.
...and you abandon it after one listen?
I'd have thought that any Grandaddy fan would be used to persevering with albums...
It takes a few spins to grab you, but it's worth the wait.
I went on to stream it about 4 or 5 times and I've pre-ordered the vinyl based on those listens. Knew it just needed time.
on vinyl then I will have all four main Grandaddy LP's and both of Jason's solo records. Was Broken Down Comforter Collection ever on vinyl?
to track down the live bootleg of Grandaddy covering Velouria because it's SO GOOD.
