Big Grin Built To Spill

I'm honestly surprised there hasn't been a single thread made for these guys, especially since some of their contemporaries (Modest Mouse, Flaming Lips) are very popular here.

This band has really grown on me a lot. I remember hearing Carry The Zero about a year ago and being absolutely floored by it, but I'm really starting to see the appeal in their entire albums now. Doug Martsch loves Neil Young, and you can totally hear it come through in the music, so that's a bonus for me. I've only heard Keep It Like A Secret (which is on almost constant rotation these days) and Perfect From Now On, but I'm very interested to hear more, and they're supposedly recording a new album.

BTS is my friend's favorite band. I think they're pretty good.

I love their song Conventional Wisdom. Very much. Good call on Neil Young, I even think the singer kinda sounds like Neil.

YouTube - Doug Martsch - Hurt a Fly

See the guy standing in front of Martsch, doing air guitar and headbanging? That's the kind of enthusiasm I want to see in this thread.

Oh yeah another thing they were all pissed off at the show I went to, maybe cause it was in utah? (I think u2popmofo was there so he can attest to this) so I'd like to see them again when they are in a better playing mood, might make for a better concert...

I CANNOT F*%KING BELIEVE THERE WASN'T A BTS THREAD

For some reason I thought I remembered speaking about them quite a bit here, but I think it was probably on Xeidon and/or another forum. Keep it Like a Secret is easily in my top 10 all time favorite albums, possibly in the top 5. I love each and every song on it. It's the type of record I think anyone who likes rock music of any sort should be required to own. Seriously.

I don't know what I'd say my second favorite record of theirs is. Possibly You In Reverse, possibly There's Nothing Wrong With Love. For some reason I still haven't gotten into Ancient Melodies or Perfect From Now On all that much yet, and I know Perfect is a big fan favorite. Miso cwazy.

They're from Idaho, so I don't know how they could be mad to be playing in here. They were mad because they had car problems, got there very late, didn't have time to sound check, as they were doing it in front of the entire crowd. The first few songs sounded terrible, and that was pissing them off. I thought they got it all sorted out after that though, at least that's how I'm remembering it now. It was a pretty killer show, despite the problems.

Wondrous.

The fall is looking pretty strong for music releases, and this one is right near the top for me.

LeMeL:

Pitchfork: Premiere: Built to Spill: "Hindsight"

Now we've got the first taste of the album, the bite-size midtempo blissout "Hindsight". The song is classic Built to Spill: sprawling liquid riffage, emotively vague lyrics, and Martsch's eternally wistful high tenor.

This is the one time I've ever begrudged Desolation Row for being 11 minutes long. Will check it out in about 7. I am a purist and need to finish every album in full, or else it'll lose artistic impact. Remember that, BTS. Give us a brilliant closer, at least.

I've listened to it twice, and I like it quite a bit. It's nothing groundbreaking, but it's a great little BtS track. Look forward to hearing what you think.

Yeah, it ain't much, but I suspect it's a perfect way too ease into the album. At least, I hope it is. A whole album of this would be wonderful, albeit with a few extended jams for good measure. Hindsight doesn't need it; it's a nearly perfect single right out of the box. I'm very impressed.
