#097: Under The Western Freeway by Grandaddy

November 20, 2012

In our quest to knock out our backlog of listener suggestions, for episode #97 we're checking out the 1997 album Under the Western Freeway by Grandaddy. Some describe Grandaddy's sound as lo-fi space-rock, drawing comparisons to The Flaming Lips, Brian Wilson and Pavement, but we also heard some more straight-forward pop in the vein of Weezer and Guided By Voices. Question is, does is work, and what could Grandaddy learn from Journey? Tune in to find out.
