Grandaddy – Brush With The Wild

GRANDADDY REVEALS VIDEO FOR “BRUSH WITH THE WILD,”
PREMIERES VIA NPR’S FIRST WATCH

TRACK FEATURED ON NEW ALBUM LAST PLACE

MODESTO, CA SHOW CONFIRMED OCTOBER 21
AT THE FOSTER THEATER AT THE GALLOW ARTS CENTER

Today, Grandaddy shares the video for “Brush With The Wild,” a track from their recent album Last Place, which was released this Spring on 30th Century Records/Columbia Records. The video stars actor and massive fan of the band, Jonah Ray (Mystery Science Theater 3000, The Nerdist Podcast, The Meltdown), and was directed by Aaron Beckum. Watch “Brush With The Wild” HERE.

NPR Music premiered “Brush With The Wild” this morning, noting that with the new video, “Grandaddy finds humor in grief.” The band’s Jason Lytle adds, “I really love the way the video turned out. So funny, and scrappy. And sad, and actually kind of hopeless…but in a hopeful way.”

In a conversation with NPR, Lytle says, “I had to be convinced it was okay to tell someone that I loved them or to just let my guard down. And then, once I did, it was almost like this wild, primal thing. But it only comes in little flashes. It’s like a fish swimming through the river and every now and then it’ll turn and the light will flash off its skin and you get a glimpse of it, then it’s gone. Lightning is like that. But you get to experience it very briefly. [So] I was thinking how sad and bummed out I was finding the relationship being done [but] at least I got to experience that. I got to brush up against it.” Read the full interview HERE.

This is the first output from Grandaddy since the death of their longtime bass player Kevin Garcia in May. The band have confirmed an October 21 show in their hometown Modesto, CA at The Foster Theater at the Gallo Arts Center. The show was originally planned as a 20th anniversary celebration of their first record Under the Western Freeway, which was released on that same day in 1997. It will now serve as a celebration of Kevin Garcia.

Last Place is a perfect addition to the band’s celebrated catalog that includes their breakthrough sophomore album, Sophtware Slump, and their debut, Under the Western Freeway. It’s a symphonic swirl of lo-fi sonics and mile-high harmonies, found sounds and electronics-gone-awry mingling with perfect, power-pop guitar tones. Lytle’s voice sounds as warm and intimate as ever, giving graceful levity to the doomsday narratives that have dominated the Grandaddy output.

“It won’t come as a shock that Grandaddy’s new album, Last Place, feels exactly like, well, old Grandaddy, in the best possible way.” –NPR

“The tracks veer stylistically, but always stay close to the group’s indie-rock sensibility which often pairs thoughtful lyrics with charming, sing-along melodies.” –Relix

“After a decade-long hiatus, the band is as sure of its footing as ever.” –Consequence of Sound

“Last Place is not only one of the band’s best LPs, it’s also Lytle’s most personal.” –Magnet

“It’s a gorgeous collection of songs that opens with Lytle living on the roof of a big box store and asking why he would ever move, wryly blending his personal history with surreal images of phony ecosystems. Last Place stands among the best Grandaddy records…”  –New York Observer

The guest features on the song make for the perfect film tie in, as both Killer Mike of Run the Jewels and Big Boi have small but memorable appearances in Baby Driver. “Chase Me” samples “Bellbottoms” by Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and features additional production from Run The Jewels El-P.

    Written and directed by Edgar Wright, Baby Driver tells the story of Baby, a talented, young getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) who relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. When he meets the girl of his dreams (Lily James), Baby sees a chance to ditch his criminal life and make a clean getaway. But after being coerced into working for a crime boss (Kevin Spacey), he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom.

Grandaddy’s Kevin Garcia

There are no accurate words to express what we need to.

We are absolutely shattered to say that we lost our friend and band mate Kevin Garcia early this afternoon. He succumbed to the effects of a massive stroke.
We were all able to say goodbye to him and he was surrounded by his closest friends and family here in Modesto.
Kevin started playing with Grandaddy when he was fifteen. He was an actual angel. He navigated life with a grace, a generosity and a kindness that was utterly unique. And contagious. He is loved so deeply by so many.
Kevin was a proud father of two children, Jayden and Gavin. He is survived by his grandmother Joan, his parents Randy and Barbara (who let us practice at their house until 2001…and who are the best), his brothers Craig and Jeff and his wife Sondra.

We’ll have more to say in the days ahead. Right now the four of us are grieving together. With great sadness and love, Grandaddy

There is a gofundme here to help with his family’s coming expenses:

The Babe Rainbow

THE BABE RAINBOW
Australian Band Signs To 30th Century Records
Debut Self-Titled Album To Be Released June 2
Band Shares Video For “Peace Blossom Boogy

squareshot- credit - @thesunflowersutra

Australia’s The Babe Rainbow are happy to announce they have signed to 30th Century Records, the label spearheaded by Danger Mouse.  The band are set to release their debut self-titled album on June 2 and today the band reveal the first single from the album, the dreamy “Peace Blossom Boogy” (which had its radio premiere on Triple J last night).  Watch the Sam
Kristofski directed video HERE.Pre-order The Babe Rainbow here.The Babe Rainbow have just finished a tour of North America supporting Allah-La’s.  They played to packed rooms from coast to coast and including stops at New York City’s Webster Hall, Chicago’s Thalia Hall and The Mohawk in Austin, TX.  They previously joined The Growlers for a US tour in the Fall of 2015.

Recorded in “magicland” Byron Bay where the band is based, and produced by Stu Mackenzie of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, The Babe Rainbow’s first LP is a think piece, stories from the dreamtime, all the colors of the rainbow.  As with the album’s teaser track “Losing Something” (Is Finding Something Else) and today’s “Peace Blossom Boogy,” expect timeless swirling sound and endless good vibes, cool cat vibes, and similar whirly-birding up and on.

The seeds of The Babe Rainbow were sown when Jack “Cool-Breeze” and Angus Darling The Hothouse Flower started a song writing partnership in middle school, but the band didn’t fully-bloom until late in 2015 when, travelling through France, the duo met Venezuelan pianist Lu-Lu-Felix Domingo and became a trio.  The band has previously released a self-titled EP featuring the single “Secret Enchanted Broccoli Forest.”
