Courtesy of the artist. It's an especially resonant unsettling mantra for these times. While revivals arrive frequently, it's more rare for a band to make a comeback album like Last Place that stands up alongside its best work. Now that Grandaddy is back, it's as good a time as any to rediscover what made this band's music so special in the first place.
On Last Place, Grandaddy feels at home, so much so that it’s almost as if the band never really left. Everything on this album just feels right, the melancholy, the peacefulness and the warmt. Or consider a donation?
When he stepped back into the cockpit to record Last Place, it was as if nothing had changed since 2006's Just Like the Fambly Cat. He was still the only member of the band writing songs and recording them. The sound of the album is very similar to where Grandaddy left off too; in fact, it's very similar to the solo albums Lytle made while the band name was on ice. A balanced amount of ballads and midtempo songs, lots of synths in the mix, Lytle's offbeat lyrical angle and plaintive vocals, the occasionally epic space.
