iTunes Review

It isn’t surprising to hear that Jason Lytle’s first solo album since disbanding the successful indie-rock combo Grandaddy would sound much like his old band. Lytle, after all, was the band’s focal point and it was his buttery vocals that melted over the melodies. He’s left Modesto, California for Montana, but even that change in geography has done nothing in terms of his focus. These still sound like deliciously lazy tunes where the sun beats down on the cheap, garage-sale synths, solid, unyielding acoustic guitars, and smooth, seamless harmonies. “Brand New Sun,” “Ghost of My Old Dog” and “Rollin’ Home Alone” ache with Lytle’s lonely Elliot Smith vibe but with that extraterrestrial mode that Lytle cleverly interjects without fanfare. He occasionally cranks up the amps (“It’s The Weekend”) but that’s the exception. Mostly, Lytle likes to idle in the spacey, trippy terrain of bucolic folk where the mid-tempo grazes in the overgrowing grass, whether it’s with acoustic guitar or ambient piano (“Fürget It”) on hand.

Return of the Native

Rumor has it that after Grandaddy's last show Jason Lytle burned his guitar and headed for Montana. While he left his friends in Modesto he took his uncanny knack for story telling along with him. This triumphant return encompasses every thing that was great about Grandaddy; devine story telling in falsetto, soaring keys, and organic acoustic guitar. Welcome back old pal, you were missed!

amazing solo effort

lytle has recorded one of his best albums to date. nice work.

touching and sincere; unearthly and removed

jason lytle has made a recording that makes me feel like i was in his living room during the recording process. i can smell the carpet and still taste the trader joe's granola from breakfast. the humor, heartfelt emotions and general weirdness are all here and it makes me want to listen to not only listen to this record but go back and check out the grandaddy i don't know as well (i.e., a pretty mess, just like the fambly cat). buy this record and listen to it on an airplane while the sun is setting.

Indie rock singer/songwriter Jason Lytle made his solo album debut in 2009, following a decade-long recording career as the frontman of Grandaddy.
