There is more than a certain poignancy in Grandaddy's opener here, built around a recurring sample of a youngster asking all innocent: 'What happened to the family cat?'
Fans of Grandaddy's feted alternative sound - sample-loving, retro-electro mash-up weirdness woven into country and folk whimsy - will likely be asking the same of these bearded Californians, as they hang up their trucker caps for the last time.
But thankfully, in signing off they have created one of their strongest albums yet.
Elevate Myself, one of the band's poppiest ever moments, fits right into The Flaming Lips' quirky but compelling sonic world.
Beautifully skewed, inspiring beardo-pop. Go buy.
