Here I am, writing this instead of my ten page research paper due last tuesday... but its for a good reason. These guys are freakin awesome. In my limited opinion, they may be the best indie rock band ever. On top of the fact that Doug Martsch's beard is probably the coolest beard on the face of the planet, he rocks especially hard, and has been a staple of the indie music scene for about 2 decades. 'Brownpower' and I had the extreme fortune of seeing these guys twice in the last few months... and they were absolutely great. There was a post a while back on BTS, so I wont say much... besides the fact that everyone needs to tell their friends to listen to this band, because they are that cool.
I just chose a few of my personal favorites, two are from the new You In Reverse
, two from Theres Nothing Wrong With Love
, which are both excellent albums. Also, theres a Doug solo song that is incredible... I recommend giving that a try, its nice and slidey:
Built to Spill - Big Dipper
