Built to Spill/Alex G/Stems

When: Thu., Sept. 29, 8:30 p.m. 2016

When singer-guitarist Doug Martsch first started the indie rock band Built to Spill back in 1992, he initially thought the group would be a studio project and deliver a series of finely tuned recordings with a rotating lineup of musicians. That sure didn’t happen. In fact, Martsch & Co. would become a touring outfit and only produce a handful of albums over a 20-plus year run. Just this summer, Built to Spill returned with Untethered Moon, its first studio album in six years. Despite a lineup change, it doesn’t represent a huge shift in the band’s sound, though Martsch says he’s become recommitted to the band and feels reinvigorated by the new lineup. Quasi’s Sam Coomes produced the album, which the group recorded in Portland, Oregon. (Niesel)
