Built To Spill release their new album, "You In Reverse" on April 11th (US only), "Conventional Wisdom" is the first taster of what can be expected from the Idaho five piece.
The album You In Reverse documents the newest branch of Built To Spill's chaotic, yet elegant evolution.
The songs are haunting rather than catchy. Each musical thought is surprising and complete. Doug's lyrics hint at politics, but could also be personal. As usual, the words lining the songs are neither directive nor dogmatic. Rational thoughts are constantly sacrificed to the metric and melodic needs of each song. No message blares forth. And yet, it's understood.

Gendry has been living under Cersei Lannister's nose for quite some time now.
The director would love to take the films in a different direction.
He'll be performing a new residency at an intimate theatre.
