Grandaddy: Sophtware Slump

The second album from Grandaddy is a loose indie-rock suite about the sad, fleeting and sometimes funny nature of technology. On Sophtware Slump, songwriter Jason Lytle has created an album filled with loping tempos, ironic lyrics and mellow, if not acid-dipped, orchestral arrangements.
