Jason Lytle

Jason Lytle, the man behind Grandaddy, joins Jim and Greg in the studio this week. Grandaddy has impressed our hosts for years with its folk-pop melodies and adventurous, atmospheric production. The band's recent release, Just Like the Fambly Cat, however, was their last. Lytle discusses his decision to disband with Jim and Greg, explaining that the music industry and life on the road became too demanding. With the exception of a tour Grandaddy did with Elliott Smith, Lytle was unhappy with how larger corporate tours were structured. For this current acoustic tour, Lytle wanted to return to a simple road trip among friends.

Fans of Grandaddy need not mourn the loss of Lytle's songwriting and production, however. He has relocated to Montana, but promises that more music is still to come. Listen to the two songs he performs, "Disconnecty" and "Jeez Louise," the latter of which is semi-autobiographical. In addition, Lytle treats us to a Sheryl Crow cover, "Always on Your Side" — a surprising choice for sure. Next time perhaps he'll treat us to a song by Electric Light Orchestra, another secret favorite of our guest.

Musical Road Trip

It's summer time, which means for many of us that road trips are on the horizon. Jim and Greg highlight some of their favorite songs about American cities, states, and regions, from Boston and New York in the east, all the way to California in the west. Of course, they also stop by the Great Plains and the south on the way.
