Jason Lytle and his band perform live in concert.

Three years after the breakup of his widely adored space-pop group Grandaddy, singer Jason Lytle has returned with one of the year's best albums. Yours Truly, the Commuter, Lytle's first solo release, picks up where Grandaddy left off, with plainspoken story songs that strike a curious and affecting balance between the cosmic and the comic. Lytle showcased the new songs, along with some old Grandaddy favorites, in this full concert, recorded live at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City on July 11.
