From the start, Under the Western Freeway established Grandaddy’s deft ability to intertwine warm melodies and wry insights, opening a curtain on their corner of the world. Modesto is known as much for its high pollution levels as it is for its proximity to the dramatic natural beauty of the Sierras, and that contrast makes its way into Grandaddy’s music. One of the things that makes this album special is how well that sound matches Lytle’s lyrical insights. Grandaddy aren’t just talking about looking out from a back porch and seeing city lights glow bright on the horizon, they’re showing you how it feels. By combining cheap electronic instruments with an organic rock band setup, Under the Western Freeway feels futuristic in a quaint way, like a space shuttle stitched together from dumpster diving and junkyards.
