Whenever Built to Spill play in town. I'm there. Doug Martseh's layered guitars inspire me tremendously the song "Everyone Gets a Star," on my new album [Yours to Keep], was me mimicking what I love about them. On You in Reverse, their new album, "Goin' Against Your Mind" is my favorite, an amazing nine-minute epic with one of the greatest, longest intros I've ever heard. Their songwriting – especially their melodic sensibilities – are underappreciated. They make modern music that sounds classic.
