Built to Spill hails from the unlikely town of Boise, ID. One of the most popular indie rock acts of the '90s, Built to Spill found the middle ground between postmodern, Pavement-style pop and the loose, spacious jamming of Neil Young. Singer/songwriter/guitarist Doug Martsch is at the core of the band, which has released six studio and one live album. Their most recent is 'You in Reverse.' Though it seems as if they disappeared years ago, Camper Van Beethoven's original members have come together every so often to make sweet music which, at the time of their 1985 debut, was truly a revelation. The band's merging of punk, folk, ska and world music has been self-described as "surrealist absurdist folk" by founding members David Lowery (Cracker), Chris Molla and Chris Pedersen.
