Thrice Monthly Dinosaurs of Indie Rock Update

This is really kind of depressing. Built to Spill has scheduled a series of US dates throughout the US in September. At said dates BTS will perform their classic 1997 album Perfect From Now On. Like, in its entirety. Awesome, right?

Except that I'll be overseas for the entirety of that tour. Which is not cool...not even a little. (See the comments section for more on Built to Spill).

In far less depressing music news, the epicly titled Rock the Net: Musicians for Net Neutrality compilation will feature a new song from Army 2.0 fave the Wrens. The Wrens haven't released a new track since 2003's Meadowlands (lazy bastards) so this is (we can hope) an exciting step toward a new album for the Jerseyites.

Ah, net neutrality...I totally used to know what that is. It has something to do with the giant tubes that connect together all our computers, right?

Built to Spill are one of my favorite bands--they rate a mention on my profile, something only 3 other acts can say.

In terms of my growth as an appreciator of music, BtS are probably more important than any other band that I've ever listened to. I got into them after seeing a 15 blurb of a concert of theirs featured on an HBO show called Reverb that was on in the late 90s while I was in college. I ordered a copy of There's Nothing Wrong With Love from Amazon, and I immediately fell head over heels.

I believe in my heart that Perfect From Now On is the ultimate Built to Spill record. It's not the catchiest, and certainly not the most immediate. But I would challenge my music friends to disagree; even if you like other BtS more, PFNO is the most (nearly) perfect manifestation of the type of epicry that Doug Martsch et al have striven toward through the years. As a Pitchfork review of the most recent BtS record says, PFNO songs clocking in at 8+ minutes sound down right economical. There is nothing affected or forced about the style or substance of these songs. They are as they were meant to be.

So that's my spiel on PFNO. Years after first hearing it, I still love this album to death.

I have no idea what you are talking about. But I do know the Built to Spill posters above our couch match the color of our accent wall very nicely. So, thanks Built to Spill!

Say Andrew, I know you don't drink coffee, but does the Army use caffine in their hot chocolate? That would explain alot about this post

andrew, i appreciate your formidable indie rock geek-ness and understand the fervor behind this post. BtS rocks. Of course, they seem to have decided to skip over the entire middle part of this country during their tour, which is less than cool.
