BUILT TO SPILL
Built to Spill is an American indie rock band based in Boise, Idaho. The band is most well known for its catchy guitar hooks and the unique voice of frontman Doug Martsch.
If you like music, you'll like Built to Spill. Bold statement? Perhaps... But it's true. BTS singer and guitarist Doug Martsch writes pop songs that are always compelling, often inspiring, and occasionally perfect.
Built to Spill were one of the most popular indie rock acts of the '90s, finding the middle ground between postmodern, Pavement-style pop and the loose, spacious jamming of Neil Young.
One of my favourite bands, for sure. An incredible musical diversity coupled with a voice so apart. Each LP is a masterpiece, with its own atmosphere and musical directions.
Unfortunately I can pride myself on having seen them live since they rarely come in Europa (should I say never?). Anyway, I keenly recommend this excellent band to every rock lover.
