New LP Last Place out on March 3 via 30th Century Records.
‘A Lost Machine’ is aptly titled. The song kind of sounds like the kind of song a machine would make if it was feeling a bit out of sorts and wayward. Vangelis synths, and Twin Peaks like eerieness surge alongside simple piano chords and frontman Jason Lytle’s distinctively falsetto. A video, consisting of a lot of snow (the analog TV kind) and scenic shots, has also been released. It’s dichotomous presentation of the natural and unnatural is a perfect complement to the track itself.
“‘A Lost Machine’ has a special place on the new Grandaddy album,” says Lytle, “Every now and then I luck out and get a pretty good idea of what a song wants to be before I dig in and start working on it. This was one of those songs. I had all kinds imagery and feelings in mind to guide me through the tracking and producing process. When this song started taking shape, it was the point where I knew I was working on a new Grandaddy album.”
