Built To Spill Shares ‘Spiderweb,’ A Nostalgic Single

Doug Martsch is like a fine wine. The leader of the timeless Built To Spill is capturing nostalgia better than ever on all of the new singles from the band’s upcoming Sub Pop Records debut album, When The Wind Forgets Your Name. At this point, Built To Spell is indie rock royalty and every new wrinkle from the Boise, Idaho faithful unlocks new psychedelic worlds led by Martsch’s fantastic guitar.

“Spiderweb” is right there with new gems like “Gonna Lose” and “Understood.” The riffs are as exploratory as Martsch’s always sweet vocals and his lyrics are simple and dreamlike, as he sings, “I learned a lot about the way things are, and what we’re supposed to do. And why you’re me and why I’m you.”

For When The Wind Forgets Your Name (out September 9th) Martsch worked extensively with Lê ​​Almeida and João Casaes of Brazilian psych rock band Oruã. They’ll be supporting Built To Spill on many of the band’s extensive upcoming tour stops.
