[pitchfork.com] When Built to Spill frontman Doug Martsch talked to Pitchfork a couple of months back about the band's forthcoming LP There Is No Enemy, he said, "There might be some things that were influenced by soul music, but it all just sounds like Built to Spill guitar music. We play the music that we can naturally play."
At last month's Pitchfork Music Festival, the band cranked out transcendent guitar solo after transcendent guitar solo without ever changing their facial expressions. Built to Spill guitar music sure comes easy to these guys.
On October 6, There Is No Enemy, album number seven for this band, will see release on Warner Bros. That alarming, murky image above is the album cover, and we've got the tracklist below.
The band has a ton of North American shows coming up over the next few months. Their axe-blazing onstage presence is a sight to behold. Check HERE for dates.
