Album Review

Artist: Jason Lytle
Album: Dept. Of Disappearance
Label: Anti/Epitaph

The soundtrack to a farmer’s encounter with alien life. On his fourth solo album Grandaddy frontman Jason Lytle uses circling synthesizers to give his folk-rock extraterrestrial vibes. A soothing and adventurous album. Like Eels minus the insanity.

Highlights: 1, 3, 7, 10!
1.(4:32): Industrial drums open into an upbeat folksy jam with an electro-rock interlude.
2.(5:15): Tension-building strings surround this triumphantly sad homage to a mountain.
3.(4:08): Distorted guitar in fits and starts. Swooping vocals and strings with a deep bass.
4.(3:52): Dreamy vocals accompanied by gentle piano and guitar. A cradle-rocking lullaby.
5.(2:16): Easy guitar and drums with occasional funky bass and analog synths. Tight intro and outro.
6.(5:44): Electronic strings and a post-rock instrumental interlude make this one lighter-worthy ballad.
7.(3:48): A supernintendo intro leads into guitar plucking and a beautiful marimba melody.
8.(6:15): Sad and slow track for the hopeless romantic, optimistic strings and swirling synth accompaniment.
9.(0:34): Classical piano melody with distant garage drums. Like walking past music practice rooms.
10.(5:10): Badass Daft Punk synths overtop a grooving bass make this one dark jam.
11.(8:14): Electro-drums and droning synth background with a rockin’ 70s guitar solo.
