Three entirely different interviews that are ultimately very similar in tone, due to Jason Lytle's personality shining through quite easily.


The Return of Melancholic Pop's Finest (2009)

Jason Lytle put an end to Grandaddy in 2006. Three years later, he released his first solo album, Yours Truly, The Commuter. This interview took place shortly before the release of the album, and it became, in all probability, the most extensive that Lytle will ever do. As such, it is divided into four chapters:

  • Chapter one: Looking back on Grandaddy
  • Chapter two: Connecting the past and the present
  • Chapter three: Heroes, colleagues, passions and guilty pleasures
  • Chapter four: Jason’s favorites


A Song For The Reluctant Ones (2013)

Sparklehorse frontman Mark Linkous passed away in 2010. To celebrate his memory and his music, a wide range of artists – including Jason Lytle, Mercury Rev and the Flaming Lips – came together to record a tribute album. In this interview, Lytle shares his favorite memories of Linkous.
