The Plan


Here is a group of poorly dressed average schlubs who play some really good guitar rock. Built to Spill occupy a weird little sweet spot of noisy and melodic where the term post-grunge isn’t an insult. They’re just thoroughly normal dudes of modest ambition who are consistently good at what they do in the niche that they’ve created. Is ‘slacker’ still an insult? Remember when ‘alternative’ was a badge of authenticity? It does seem that listening to this record instantly whisks me off into 90’s nostalgia. Must be the cargo shorts. Party like it’s 1999?
