Built To Spill There Is No Enemy on Vinyl 2LP + CD!
Guitar-Driven Idaho Collective Returns to Form on Excellent 2009 Studio Set!
When making the new Built To Spill album There Is No Enemy, Doug Martsch literally lived in the studio working all day and night. He spent hours and hours laying down guitar tracks he realized he couldn't use since the first live takes had the best tone and feel. He had to undigitally remix the record. There Is No Enemy has the sound and feel of the album that every Built To Spill fan has been anxiously awaiting.
In addition to Martsch and his usual support, There Is No Enemy includes guest spots from Sam Coomes, ex-Treepeople co-guitarist/vocalist Scott Schmaljohn, Butthole Surfer Paul Leary, and Roger Manning. The result? The Idaho band's best studio effort in nearly a decade.
"While Enemy technically sounds just like every Built to Spill record since Keep It Like a Secret-- the pinwheeling guitar fantasias, the ambling tempos, and the wayward vocal lines are all here-- it is buoyed by a fresh sense of emotional stakes, an urgency that puts wind back in the band's sails. For the first time in almost 10 years, it seems that Martsch might actually have something he wants to say." -Jayson Greene, Pitchfork, October 2009
