Thoughts on the new Grandaddy songs?


#1

Grandaddy shared 2 new songs (Way We Won’t and Clear Your History) on Danger Mouse’s label this morning, what do you all think?


#2

Had heard Way We Won’t before live, and Marc Riley played it on his show a few weeks ago - smiled so much when I first heard it, it’s like they were never gone. Think the solos sound a bit murky but when it’s that fun I don’t really mind.

Clear Your History sounds incredible though, got a bit of an Underneath the Weeping Willow/So You’ll Aim Towards the Sky vibe, could totally be nestled somewhere in Sophtware Slump.


#3

Yeah, love Clear Your History too. Just wish it was a bit longer. Very excited about the new album!


#4

Really like both of these songs.


#5

These are both great, particularly Clear Your History. Looking forward to a new album!

Agree with @egotripping that Clear Your History wouldn’t sound out of place on Sophtware Slump. Lovely stuff!


#6

Love both of them! Got really drunk last night and listened to them both about 10 times, grinning my head off.

I love the murky sounding solo that @egotripping mentioned above. It’s that Classic Grandaddy scuzzy and unpolished charm. Like the solo from Levitz. What do you think the chances are they’ll come to New Zealand? Slim, but I can dream :kissing_smiling_eyes:


#7

I think I haven’t heard them


#8

Not listened yet, which is baffling considering I adore pretty much everything Grandaddy! I’ll pop them on later, are they on Spotify or iTunes?


#9

On Spotify… similarly passed me by until I listened a few minutes ago. Mega excited now.


#10

They both sounds brilliant. I hope the full LP isn’t too far away.


#11

They’re great. Way We Won’t sounds like it could be off Sumday.


#12

I love ‘Way We Won’t’. When the synth riff comes I burst out in a grin everytime. ‘Clear Your History’ is nice, definite b-side material though.

Seriously looking forward to the album now.


#13

Love the new songs, I’m glad they didn’t change their sound. Agree reminiscent of Sophtware Slump.

Was very emotional due to a hangover while listening to that. Ended up having a soft cry during ‘I’m On Standby’. Really liked the new songs, turns out he played the second of them when I saw him solo earlier this year.
