Built to Spill’s new single, “Living Zoo” is a haunting zany track off the band’s upcoming record, Untethered Moon. Fronted by Doug Martsch, Built to Spill create resonate and sonorous songs that have endured and endeared since their start in 1992. Untethered Moon is the band’s first album since 2009 and with new bandmates, Steve Gere (drums) and Jason Albertini (bass).
Produced by Martsch and Sam Coomes (Quasi, Sleater-Kinney, Elliott Smith) the record makes for the perfect addition to their discography of intelligent, melodic, and lyrically thoughtful records. The track “Living Zoo” is sunnier than their last record, but still unadulterated Built to Spill. Stereogum notes, “Doug Martsch’s guitars and vocals are two of indie rock’s truly signature sounds.” Check out “Living Zoo” and stay tuned for Untethered Moon, out later this spring.
