It's good, but not better than several of Built To Spill's albums.

If by several, you mean Ancient Melodies and Ultimate Alternative Wavers, then maybe.

holy shit, how did i not know about this:



Boise Cover Band - Unoriginal Artists [EP]
Sold exclusively at Built to Spill concerts in 2003


Steven Hyden, Pop Matters wrote:
From a 2002 interview with Doug Martsch:

Pop Matters: What is the state of Built to Spill right now?
Doug Martsch: We're going to start doing stuff in the springtime, I guess. Just get together and start writing new songs and try to make a record. Last November was the last time we've done anything, and I think by January or February we'll start writing songs and hopefully do some touring in the spring or summer. I've got another band, too, that I just kind of started a few months ago that's a cover band. Hopefully by the end of this year we'll have made a record here at my house, too.

PM: What's that band called?
DM: Boise Cover Band.

PM: What covers are you playing?
DM: Mostly they're reggae songs, but we do them straight-ahead, not reggae-style. We just do them as pop songs. A lot of reggae songs, the influence came from soul music from America. So they kind of took soul songs and turned them into reggae, and we're going to turn them into something else.

PM: Most guys form original bands so they don't have to play covers. What made you want to start a cover band?
DM: It actually started out as one of those jam things I was talking about, where I just had a few friends who wanted to play more and we talked about getting together once a week and just jamming. We did that once or twice and I was like, "This is boring, I'm tired of jamming." I want to actually play some songs. It comes and goes, the moods of what kind of music I feel like making. Sometimes jamming is just dull and boring, so I started learning some songs. I want to do this forever. I'd love to have this going on always, just to keep in practice of playing and recording but you don't have to write the songs. We're still interpreting music. I feel very much super involved in it. I feel as excited about doing this stuff as I have about any Built to Spill things, and I feel its every bit as valid as a Built to Spill record.

PM: Any songs you want to mention that you're working on?
DM: Most are kind of obscure reggae songs, but there's a couple popular songs. Like we do a instrumental version of "Back on the Chain Gang" by The Pretenders. It's sort of pretty and we sing "ahhs" in it but no words. We do "Ashes to Ashes" by David Bowie. Everything we do is really mellow and I play bass in the band. Our drummer and our guitar player are actually a guitar player and a keyboard player that have switched to those instruments. They're good. We're all in our mid-30s so everyone is pretty good at playing even instruments we don't usually play. And we have another guitar player who is like a virtuoso hotshot guitar player. His name is Ned Evett and he plays a fretless guitar. He's kind of a pioneer fretless guitar player. He's amazing, beautiful. He just got done touring Europe and he did a couple shows with Steve Vai and shit.


Track Listing

1. Loving Pauper (Dobby Dobson)
2. Ashes To Ashes (David Bowie)
3. I Love You More (Lee Williams And The Cymbals)
4. Strange (The Delusions)
5. Chain Gang (The Pretenders)
6. I'm Glad (Captain Beefheart And His Magic Band)
7. Ta Magia Sto Pegadi (Georgios Trakis)

I completely agree with the ancient melodies remark. However, not so much on the You In Reverse remark. My favorite album is Perfect From Now on, I think Built to Spill is at their best when their songs are sprawling.

i see it similarly. i didn't even bother listening to the most recent one more than once. but keep it like a secret is one of my top 20 favorite albums i'd guess

i just listened to as much of the new record as i could handle, and i remembered that i like "liar" and "saturday". they made them both way too long on the album. there are really good and short early live versions out there.
