Jason Lytle on Noisetrade.

The erstwhile, though now recently reunited, Grandaddy frontman Jason Lytle releases his new solo album Dept. Of Disappearance on Anti- today. It has been picking up some excellent reviews and we are expecting more of his brilliantly forlorn and mournful tales wrapped up in warm landscapes of sound.

To mark the event, there is a free sampler available from Noisetrade containing three tracks from the album as well as an alternate version of Hangtown and two tracks from his outstanding 2009 release Yours Truly, The Commuter.

Click here to get the sampler for free, or grab a taste below in the shape of the wonderfully weary heartbreak and ennui of Somewhere There’s A Someone.

Alternatively, just go and buy the album here.
