Hindsight


Here’s a track of the upcoming album from one of my favorite bands. Built to Spill, known for epic, spacey guitar rock brings a little country to the sound. It’s like the gray hair that’s finding a way into their beards is also weaving its way into their music.

Just got home from seeing these guys live tonight. They couldn’t be playing any better. For a band that has struggled a little with being the center of attention, a little age, a little less concern, suits them well. They’ve never seemed so comfortable. Or rocked so hard.

I want a song with moderate to low intensity or I end up sprinting and worn out before I’ve even started. But I don’t want anything too slow or I focus soley on my pain. It want to tilt my head back, with my eyes half open and settle in to a rhythm that feels like the pace of my body, like, I could run all day, comfortable but invigorated. These are songs that make me feel that way. Read more…

Broken Chairs


Broken Chairs by Built to Spill (Website)

This song is neither new or new to me, but it came up on my running mix last night and I had to post it. Thundering shock-and-awe guitar work that would make the Gods of Rock shiver make this song one of my favorite tracks from one of my favorite bands.

Running compilation coming soon.
