Gran­daddy – Last Place

Yorkshire Post - Culture & The Guide - - /9 - DAR­RYL WEB­BER

Gran­daddy split up in 2006, but, de­spite re­form­ing in 2012, kept quiet un­til sin­gle

Way We Won’t emerged late last year - and it felt like they’d never been away. Chunky riffs and Ja­son Ly­tle’s dis­tinc­tive vo­cals were re­as­sur­ingly fa­mil­iar and the perfect way to rein­tro­duce the band. That track opens Last Place, set­ting the tone for a col­lec­tion of gor­geously off­beat, di­shev­elled lo-fi rock. Brush With The Wild chugs along with fuzzy gui­tars and strange elec­tronic noises; 70s style key­boards and ef­fects re­cur through­out. The Boat Is In The Barn veers be­tween jaunty 60s pop and ten­der lament ef­fort­lessly, Chek In­jin rocks in and out, Jed The 4th is short, sweet and im­pos­si­bly sad. Last Place is an al­bum full of wit, in­ven­tion and tunes The Bea­tles would be proud of.
