The last I remember Jason Lytle said he'd like to make a new Grandaddy album but he wasn't sure about touring. In the meantime I'd think a lot of Grandaddy fans will like [artist]Cold Crows Dead[/artist] - they've recently released one of my albums of 2013 and at least one of the songs does sound very Grandaddy-ish.
I saw these dudes at Glasgow ABC a couple of weeks back - does anyone remember the song that was put up on the projector before Grandaddy came on? I really liked the sound of it, but had no idea who it was.
It sounded like halfway between the Flaming Lips and OK Go (or maybe more like White Rabbits - quite percussion-y), except with a younger, blonde, clean shave singer dude, and the video had a blue screen in it, with colourful concentric circles behind the band performing? It was two songs before that Arcade Fire one, if that helps.
Help me out internet, I'd be grateful, and you'd get music points for it.
One of Jason's songs is covered on [artist]Nick Cave[/artist] new soundtrack project to go with John Hillcoat's new film called Lawless. Have a look at all the details here http://www.twentyfourbit.com/2012/05/nick-cave-friends-lawless-soundtrack/
