I'd prefer Mr Lytle put his mind to a new Grandaddy LP, but I'm sure he's working on it. I bought this purely on the strength that it was Grandaddy associated and therefore guaranteed to be a super cool. I know all about Snow Patrol, Pavement and Beck, but who the hell are Beulah, Earlimart, Fruit Bats and Giant Sands? How could I not know about these bands? Jason Lytle is clearly inspired by his contempories, and if you love Grandaddy you'll love this collection. The sleeve notes make the point that these songs aren't the obvious hits of their respective albums, but they sound hugely melodic to me. That's why I can't wait to explore a whole bunch of back catalogues. There isn't one band song on this LP, and the songs are intricate enough to get better with every listen.

This CD is a very nice compilation.
Not only is it a great collection of songs, but if you are a Grandaddy fan it is special in another way too. It gives a really good insight into Jason's influences and where he draws his inspiration from.
There are a few artists on here i had never previously heard of, and even the ones i had heard of, i don't own any of the songs. Mix tapes of this sort are really good if you are looking to 'discover' a new band. I personally have put a few of the associated CD's on my wishlist and will hopefully get them soon.
Buy this CD because it has brilliant songs. It definately has the lytle-factor, and for that reason it has a magical edge.

Jason Lytle has an eclectic ear and the 15 songs chosen for this album are testament. From the opening 'we live again' through to Fruits Bats 'the little acorn' and The Handsome Family 'I fell' he has presented a unique selection of varied yet somehow similar music that to me at least is not unlike some of the best lo-fi melodies he himself has penned. A lot of bands on this album I hadn't heard of but but thats all about to change because Mr Lytle has released an invitation to all to enjoy this music - my advice is don't turn him down.

Jason Lytle has here assembled some of his favourite tracks for your listening pleasure, most of the tracks ploughing the same electronic furrow as his own band, the excellent Grandaddy. Fascinating in that nearly every track contains some element you can recognise having been an inspiration on Lytle's back catalogue, this was an ear-opening introduction to at least half a dozen new bands for me.

have you heard that mix tape me buddy jason made 15 Nov. 2004
By shownonono - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Remember back when you were 14 and someone, a girlfriend or a new buddy, would make you a mix tape? you were so excited. Sometimes they were bad, sometimes they were great but, whatever the quality, they usually turned you on to new bands. That's kind of what Under the Radar is except this time Jason Lytle from Grandaddy made you the mix. It might be a stretch to call it "the new Grandaddy Cd" but in a way thats what it is. Jason compiled 14 tracks by different artists such as indie heavy weights Blonde Redhead, Giant Sand and Pavement as well as some lesser known gems in Little Wings and Snow Patrol. You may know all the track or you might have never heard of any of the bands but as a single flowing album this works. This is a collection of tracks that in some ways show you the mindset of grandaddy. So you can enjoy a collection of well know favorites that all work together to create something new or experience for the first time some unbelievable song, either way Below the Radar works hard to make you happy.

It is weird that this is just now happening 1 Dec. 2004
By Pink Thunder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This seems like an idea that's time came about twenty years ago, which isn't to be taken as a slight. Ninety percent of the hack music journalism of the last five years has revolved around the "derivative" nature of band X, and then engaged in the utterly pointless, self-congradulatory game of stopping the influence.

Now Grandaddy come along with a great CD of songs that have, in some way shape or form, stimulated them as a band. It may seem like a cheat to put this out with the Grandaddy name on it, but a few cursory listens will prove that it's a really valuable look at the band, from a canted perspective... Which, of course, is all just blather, but the songs are rock f-ing solid. Beulah, Pavement, Blonde Redhead, all in top form, nicely sequenced, with a great new Grandaddy tune... This is even better than The Crow soundtrack.

Great intoduction to some new music. 19 Nov. 2005
By Robert Hart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I actually bought this CD by accident. What a pleasant surprise.

It's a great new twist on the mix tape. If you've ever loved good music but have been underwhelmed of late or just don't know what's new, what's good, then give this CD a try. Every track is interesting and creative. Because it's a great mix tape, the songs are unique but they do flow together and compliment each other. You can hear shades of (a young)Neil Young, Lou Reed, even Jazz and Country flavours.

As I said, if you've ever loved music, give this a try.
Nature Anthem 12 Nov. 2004
By zachtown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When I first heard grandaddy was releasing Below The Radio (a compilation of Jason Lytte's favorite B-sides and under exposed songs from favorite artists) I held a lot of hope for the finished product. This is saying a lot because it takes a certain amount of madness and balls to release a mix tape however, Jason Lytte's ear has consistently sought out new an interesting ways to create unexpectedly coordinated sounds. So sure he can write some great songs and it would make sense he could appreciate the same traits in his contemporaries.

Despite being nothing really new it is a beautiful example of how music can when juxtaposed to itself reflect entirely new moods and messages. Simple placement of these relatively obscure songs creates a fluid and beautiful trip.

Beck's we live again works as an introduction to the almost mystical re-genitive cycle of life and nature. It represents a birth and the pure nature we are born a part. Alternatively the album culminates in Granddaddy's catchy and cheerful return to nature "Nature Anthem" declaring he wants to "walk up the side of a mountain... walk back down the other-side of a mountain."

While the first and last tracks do the most to set up this theme of nature connectedness and cycle, the 13 songs in between are by no means filler. Blond Redheads "For The Damaged", Little Wings- Sand Canyon Beulah- Burned by the sun and many others all serve to remind us something or other (the only way i could ever really put it) all while exploring many sides of the same face.

A beautiful experiment in album construction and a testament to good taste.
A really cool idea that--oddly--makes a really cool album 5 Nov. 2004
By LaBete80 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The compilation/ mix is an easily fouled-out concept, and for every No New York there probably a jillion Survival of the Fattests... Bearing that in mind, there's something elegantly simple about letting a band--great in their own right--put together a collection of worthy songs. There was a Mojo some time ago that showed the tracklist to a mix tape that Thurston Moore made for potential members of a then-nascent Sonic Youth; the sequencing, selection, everything was impeccable, and yet it said as much about Sonic Youth as an organism than it did any of the selected bands... In this sense, 'Below the Radio' is a very real Grandaddy album in a strange sort of way. That aside, the individual songs are ALL great; Beulah's 'Burned by the Sun' and Snow Patrol's 'Run' deserve special attention, if only because they throw light on two bands I'd never given particular notice before... Well worth a listen, for fans of Grandaddy and so on...
