Parallel to the selected reunion concerts with Grandaddy, Jason Lytle decided to reactivate his solo career, with a new album, “ Dept. Of Disappearance”, out on 16th October through Anti-. According to the press release, the album is an “emotionally resonant soundtrack for a non-existent cinematic masterpiece” . In Lyte's own words, the effort sounds like a room full of “strange, brilliant autistic kids with very peculiar social skills. But there are a few conventional, good-looking ones who go out and shake hands and get the good jobs. Then they come home and help take care of the other weird, wonderful ones.”
The announcement comes with an advance track, the title song, a piece of indie rock with soft textures, much in the vein of the Californian's previous outings.
