Performer Notes
  • Indie rock stalwarts going back to the early 1990s, Built to Spill have pleased fans for years, and their first album in three years, THERE IS NO ENEMY, occupies much the same territory as 2006's YOU IN REVERSE. Doug Martsch's absorbed and witty wordplay consistently turns lyrical convention on its head, the songs feature a parade of quirky hooks, and with their driving, accomplished backing, the band draw in a range of potential audiences, from their indie fanbase to jam bands to singer/songwriters. Martsch makes a virtue of steadfastness and reflection, the single "Hindsight" bemoaning those who wonder, "Is the grass just greener 'cause it's fake?" Besides connecting the dots between the chugging side of Neil Young and the slightly warped alternapop of the Flaming Lips, Built to Spill continue releasing some of the most affecting, beguiling indie rock of the 2000s.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.70) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Most songs sprawl near five minutes or longer. But their components are all about simple melodic beauty, writ large -- prog-rock for pop purists."

Spin (p.74) - "[T]hey still flourish in a languid, EVERYBODY KNOWS THIS IS NOWHERE comfort zone."

Alternative Press (p.112) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he band once again marry that guitar-hero aesthetic with their restrained, romantic side on songs like 'Nowhere Lullaby'..."

Billboard (p.33) - "On the country-rock flavored single 'Hindsight,' frontman Doug Martsch sings in a wistful tenor over a mix of languid and urgent guitar riffs..."
