Grandaddy frontman makes comp

Grandaddy frontman Jason Lytle has assembled a mix CD to be issued under the moniker “Below the Radio” this fall via Ultra Records. Beyond tracks by Pavement, Beck, Snow Patrol and Elbow, the set features a new Grandaddy track, “Nature Anthem.” “I can¹t help but notice how they are not big ‘heavy hitters’ off of the albums that they came from, or the songs that the record labels would have suggested as being ‘singles,'” Lytle says. “They did although end up being my favorite songs from those albums and this fact has intrigued me since childhood. Why am I usually more smitten with the unobvious hits than the obvious hits? Somewhere in this list lies the answer.” Other artists represented on the album include Beulah, Earlimart, Giant Sand, Goldenboy, the Handsome Family and Blonde Redhead.
