Dept of Disappearance is reminiscent of a series of film soundtracks, and was compared by Lytle to 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.”

Check out the title track on Soundcloud here (via Pitchfork).

Grandaddy, after breaking up in 2006, will be reunited for a series of shows in August, followed by Lytle’s solo tour dates in fall.

Grandaddy Live Dates:
8-8   Big Sur, Henry Miller Library
8-11 San Francisco, Outside Lands Festival
8-12 San Francisco, The Independent
8-13 Los Angeles, The Fonda
