In House #1597: Built to Spill's You In Reverse; New Band of Horses, Quasi
In what most certainly seems like a blast from some of our long-gone innocent youths, Boise's Built to Spill returned this week with You In Reverse, their first release in five years. Not that this new effort has much in common with the pre-911, pre-indie-rock-soundtracked-tv-shows Ancient Melodies of the Future, but it has been a while. Doug Martsch and the boys have dusted off the guitars nicely, however, and many are calling the new music evidence of a rejuvenated Built to Spill. One big difference over their previous work has to do with space, as in that within the songs. They've done big and epic before, to be sure, but this seems to be a looser, more free-form kind of space, thus making good on all of those bearded jamband quips that have been uttered. The band begins a massive tour in Calgary on June 9th-- a tour that was recently pushed back two months because of an eye injury Martsch suffered playing pick-up basketball. That one gets bearded rockers every time.
