Built To Spill "Goin' Against Your Mind"

I've been meaning to make this song my mp3 of the week for quite a while now but because of it's too long to email I'm putting it up here. Built To Spill has once again made us wait for another indie guitar swing masterpiece but the wait was worth it for this song alone. "Goin' Against Your Mind" is nine minutes of Doug Martsch doing what he does best: showcasing shimmering guitars and inpetetrable lyrics like "though i saw an alien/turned out to be just god".

This bearded Idahoan has composed the soundtrack to much of my life so far, however incidental it may have been. It seems like every stage of my life can be remembered by a Built To Spill song, probably because he waits anout three or four years in between every record. "Goin' Against Your Mind" will surely be no exception, as I already have memories of jamming out to it driving hung over back to Los Angeles from Lompoc, CA with visions of Sugar Leaves dancing in my head. Only a few will be able to decipher THAT one!

The mere thought of Built To Spill brings back memories of drinking tiki beverages, swilling the 500 beers you bought at the Troubadour, and then making the regretful decision to go back for the infamous "ginger margarita." ROCK.

You are coming to my birthday party on Sunday, aren't you, Mr. McCullough?
