According to Pop Matters, “There isn’t any other band quite like Built to Spill in the musical clime of 2015.” The site recently sat down with Doug Martsch, who has deftly helmed the ever-evolving band for more than two decades, to learn about the inspirations and process behind their new album, Untethered Moon. Check out the interview, in which “Martsch speaks honestly and sincerely about the music he loves, the shift in band members, and his lack of preparedness for a career in music,” here.
Untethered Moon, which Pop Matters says is “one of Built to Spill’s finest records,” is off to a great start at radio and hit #8 on the CMJ Radio 200 last week. Much of this success can be attributed to the singles “Living Zoo” and “Never Be the Same,” each of which have hilarious music videos to accompany them. Watch the “Living Zoo” then follow that up with its sequel “Never Be the Same,” below.
