Half Notes: Built To Spill – You In Reverse (2006)

by Tom Johnson

You just don’t think of too many great guitarists in indie-rock. It’s practically built into the genre to not emphasize your skills. So what a refreshing treat a band like Built To Spill is where they most definitely fall into that meaningless “indie rock” category (since they were recording for Warner Bros.) and guitarist/singer Doug Martsch can absolutely wail. Martsch hails from the Neil Young school of guitar and uses every opportunity to squeeze out beautiful squeals of solos that manage to remain tasteful and yet still get your blood pumping. You In Reverse wasn’t anything shockingly new from the band, but it summed them up in one perfect, extremely satisfying album of new music.
