Built To Spill – Goin Against Your Mind

I’m kicking myself that I haven’t posted this yet. Earlier in the year I had ‘Goin Against My Mind’ on constant rotation (do mp3’s rotate, hmmm) but reached a point where moshing in public places was beginning to get me into serious trouble so I stopped. Doug Martsch has that perfect grandaddy pitch, that nasal whine that you know was just bred for singing in a seminal band. Factor in the fact that his outfit Built to Spill have been on the go for over 15 years with an enviable back catalogue of 6 albums. The last one arrived last year and ‘Goin Against Your Mind’ was the sprawling opener. Laid out over 8 sumptuous minutes it stacks up well against the classics with the band slowly feeding ideas, falling back to near silence and then blowing the roof with a memorable noisy swirl. Can someone please post my bail, I’ll be in the cell marked ‘the agressive jumper’. KD
