Built To Spill are one of the most loved American indie rock bands of the last twenty-five years. They started life in the 90s indie scene, and they sit with Pavement, Yo La Tengo and Dinosaur Jr up in that pantheon.

They brought a classic rock vibe to the period; they are certainly not afraid of a guitar solo and can wig out and drift off like few bands have since the 70s.

BTS are led by guitar hero Doug Marstch

“He can noodle you into submission, but chops aren’t what make Doug Martsch’s playing so charming. It’s the bloopy nuggets of melody wound around his voice that you find yourself humming long after the final chorus fades.” SPIN

New album Untethered Moon shows BTS’s creative process continues to ebb, flow and evolve in its own orbit; in recent years they have played live more than at any time in their history. That says something for the fire and focus of Built To Spill.

“When we get together and pick up our instruments, I always believe that something magical is going to happen.”
