Song of the Day: Grandaddy - The Crystal Lake

After OK Computer, and certainly after Kid A, any rock band that used a computer blip sound in a song was instantly crowned the next Radiohead. Not surprisingly, ten years later, there still isn't another Radiohead, but Grandaddy's second album, The Sophtware Slump - released the same year as Kid A - came closest to matching the dystopia of those Radiohead albums.  This song probably isn't the best representation of that sound, but for my money, it's the best song on the album.
