Lytle also recently collaborated with Band Of Horses lead singer Ben Bridwell on a cover of the Towns Van Zandt song “Don’t You Take It Too Bad.” As Bridwell explains, “the “Townes Van Zandt cover was started by me in a Italian hotel room and finished in the wilds of Montana by Mr. Lytle.” You can listen to and download the track for free by going to: http://jasonlytle.com/2012/11/18/dont-you-take-it-too-bad
While Lytle initially made an impact with his influential band Granddaddy, he has subsequently built a catalog of highly inventive and emotionally resonant solo works. His latest Dept. of Disappearance plays like an emotionally resonant soundtrack for some non-existent cinematic masterpiece. On it the sometimes reclusive but always intriguing musician infuses the toil of ordinary existence with a sweeping sonic beauty.
You can watch a new video of Lytle performing his song "Somewhere There's A Someone" from Dept. of Disappearance at home on a piano intercut with images of the surrounding Montana landscape.
