“Last thing I heard I was left for dead,” begins Jason Lytle on the first song and title track of his reappearing act, Yours Truly, The Commuter (released earlier this week on Anti-). The former Grandaddy frontman’s solo debut is an ELO-pop rainbow for downtrodden times, a personal reclamation project (read our Lytle cover story/Grandaddy obituary here) that suddenly applies to the world at large. Lytle is back and busier than ever, appearing on the Danger Mouse/Sparklehorse album Dark Night Of The Soul and performing dates with Neko Case in June. He also guest edited magnetmagazine.com earlier this year.
