Jason Lytle, 'Yours Truly, the Commuter' (Anti-)

Critical Mass
Label:

by Kenny Herzog

After dissolving his warmly existential outfit Grandaddy, singer-guitarist-keyboardist Jason Lytle escaped to the mountains of Montana. But instead of the nakedly emotional folk echoes of fellow isolationist Bon Iver, he's produced a textured homage to the lush and laid-back West Coast dream life of his youth. Yours Truly occasionally provides pummeling feedback rock ("It's the Weekend"), but when Lytle's lullaby vocals suggest, "You should hold my hand / While everything blows away / And we'll run to a brand-new sun," it's like Bruce Springsteen's open highway finally reached a melancholy kid from Modesto.
