Scott Weiland Explains Why Grandaddy Is One Of His Favorite Bands

Grandaddy and Stone Temple Pilots were two of my favorite bands circa 2000, and I'm happy to report that they like each other, too. Actually, I can't confirm how Jason Lytle feels about STP, but Scott Weiland apparently is a big fan of Grandaddy. Weiland told Esquire about his 10 favorite bands, and Grandaddy made… More »

Band Of Horses & Grandaddy – “Hang An Ornament”

Here's some news that will have '00s indie-heads all atwitter: Grandaddy's Jason Lytle is producing the next Band Of Horses album. It makes a lot of sense, as both acts originated from the Pacific Northwest and put their own expansive modern spin on indie and folk-rock sounds. Band Of Horses announced the news on SoundCloud,… More »

Grandaddy, Caveman @ The Independent, San Francisco 8/12/12

Even though Jason Lytle  has a new solo album, he managed to work in some reunion dates with much loved Grandaddy. Their triumphant David Cross approved set at Outside Lands rightfully necessitated a late night after show on Sunday at the Independent. Caveman provided support with their shimmery guitars and synthesizer… More »

Admiral Radley, The Happy Hollows @ Hammer Museum, Los Angeles 7/8/10

Admiral Radley kicked off their tour with a free show at L.A.'s Hammer Museum. It's appropriate: the Hammer Museum is where the band decided on their name, via Admiral Radley himself. According to Admiral Radley (the band), they visited the Hammer Museum after a long and frustrating day of trying to make music together. They… More »

Jason Lytle & Midlake – “I Need You” (America Cover) Live Video

At different times, Midlake and The Sophtware Slump-era Grandaddy were getting Radiohead comparisons. Both have moved on from the label (for better or worse) or moved on entirely, as Lytle has. In 2009 Lytle released his debut solo album, lately he's been playing with Admiral Radley. Brit/American band America seems a better comparison for… More »

Admiral Radley – “I Heart California” (Stereogum Premiere)

Admiral Radley is made up of Aaron Espinoza and Ariana Murray from Earlimart and Jason Lytle and Aaron Burtch of Grandaddy. The band sounds like a good mix of both projects (their bio says they were even thinking of calling themselves "Earlidaddy" or "Grandimart"). But since it's Lytle singing lead on this first taste from… More »

New Jason Lytle Video – “I Am Lost (And the Moment Cannot Last)”

Ex-Grandaddy Jason Lytle hasn't been shy about his new gently anthemic solo album Yours Truly, the Commuter. We've heard the mellow let's-get-inspired-and-outrun-the-rat-race title track, learned about "A Brand New Sun," and caught his lunchtime SXSW set. Offering a change-up, "I Am Lost (And the Moment Cannot Last)" gives us something a Lytle… More »

SXSW 2009: Saturday In Photos

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy The last day at SXSW is always tinged with a depressing end-of-the-summer vibe. (Or maybe end of the school year?) However you want to frame it, once the Saturday sun sets, the remaining hours of four short days feel like the end of something bigger. Pass a hankie. Seriously… More »

Grandaddy’s “A.M. 180″ Defuses Bombs, Walks Marathons, Sells Dodge Journeys

Indie rock and car commercials go hand in hand. Just ask Wilco. Tapping into an especially nostalgic playlist in our brain, the new Dodge Journey features Sophtware Slump-ing, keyboard-lined California rock 'n' roll quintet Grandaddy. Yes, Jason Lytle & Co. may no longer be with us as such, but that doesn't mean they… More »
