Recorded at Floater, Modesto, California and Headcorders, Coulterville, California.Ladies and gentlemen, please hold your calls, we have a winner. Modesto, California's Grandaddy smacks you upside the head with the melodic one-two punch of the opening tracks and seldom lets up after that. Broken-down synthesizers wheeze and squeak out melodies that pass "the old gray whistle test" with a vengeance (i.e. you'll be whistling them for weeks). UNDER THE WESTERN FREEWAY is an auspicious debut. With a couple of big, burly guys that adhere to the TAD school of haute couture and an undeniable vocal similarity to Neil Young, this group is a wonderful, left field surprise.
