Grandaddy release a new EP, Things Anyway, today, Friday, October 13 on Danger Mouse’s 30th Century/Columbia Records. The EP’s four tracks are demos and live recordings, all taken from the band’s Last Place album campaign, which includes a demo version of “The Boat Is In the Barn,” as well as performances from the WFUV studios and the KUTX SXSW event. Last Place was released this past spring on 30th Century Records / Columbia. Today they share “The Boat Is In The Barn” (Home Piano Demo) which is now available below.
Last Place, is a perfect addition to Grandaddy’s celebrated, critically-acclaimed catalogue, 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.
