Yours Truly, The Commuter

Genre: Rock; Lead Performer: Jason Lytle

In 2006, after a decade-plus fronting Cali dream-pop miserabilists Grandaddy, bearded skateboard aficionado Jason Lytle broke up his group and hightailed it to Montana. Yet big-sky country hasn’t changed him much: Yours Truly, The Commuter, Lytle’s solo debut, is a sweetly sad collection of fuzzed-out odes to frustration (the bouncy title track) and furry friends (”Ghost of My Old Dog”). Even when he’s singing about the weekend — on, uh, ”It”s the Weekend” — Lytle’s fragile voice sounds a hairbreadth from tears. C’mon, dude! What could possibly be depressing about weekends in Montana? B
