Records - Built To Spill (4 stars)


You in Reverse (Rykodisc)


It’s been years since we last heard from this influential, Idaho-based collective and thankfully we find them on remarkable form sixth record around. Refreshingly at odds with the current glowsticks and guitars-strewn music scene they have crafted a beguiling work that will excite both newcomers and devotees alike. From eight minute opener ‘Goin’ Against Your Mind’ onwards, it twists and turns, stops and starts and changes tempo and mood, keeping the listener gripped throughout with fragile vocals, buzzing solos and melodies that ache with melancholy. Built to Spill are an unbelievably talented outfit and You in Reverse serves as the perfect reminder of that.
