Check out the story on Stereogum detailing the recording process for the upcoming Built to Spill album. Martsch is so candid and realistic in describing the type of band Built to Spill is.
“We have a bunch of records out. There’s no hurry for us to sell music. We can put out a a record every five or six years, and that’s plenty of Built to Spill music. The world doesn’t need a new Built to Spill record every year.”
Now, that would be bullshit if Built to Spill put out mediocre records. But they don’t. All their albums are rich.
