Grandaddy's comeback is very likable|Posted .I would recommend this to a friend
Eleven years after its last record, Grandaddy is back with the very good Last Place. Jason Lytle, who apparently made almost all the music on Last Place, has recreated the winning sound of 2003's Sumday, which had the terrific singles Now It's On and El Camino's In The West. Last Place shows Lytle's gift for creating an inviting lo-fi sound. The fact that his guitar and keyboard based arrangements seem simple masks the songs' tight construction. Similarly, Lytle's very laid back vocals seem effortless but they pull you in with their tunefulness and lack of pretention. Grandaddy's return was smartly introduced with the release, months before Last Place, of the single Way We Won't. With its chugging guitar and drums and very catchy keyboard line, Way We Won't is remarkably inviting. The rest of Last Place isn't quite as amazing but it's consistently appealing and well put together with a mix of mellow songs and good rockers like Brush With the Law and Chek Injin.

Gandaddy is back!|Posted .I would recommend this to a friend
After a 10 year hiatus Grandaddy is back. I love this album. Their last album, Just like the Fambly Cat, felt thrown together, but Last Place sounds just as good as Sumday. It is a very cohesive record and flows from beginning to end. If you expect the Software Slump you aren’t going to get it with this album, but if you love Sumday you will love this album.
