Album Review: When the Wind Forgets Your Name by Built to Spill

Excellent, Based on 1 Critic

Under The Radar - 80
Based on rating 8/10

The past 30 years have seen Doug Martsch and his Built to Spill collaborators as a band that never conforms to the whims of the time but rather as established purveyors of dependable album-oriented guitar rock with a complex character and stylistic dynamics. The new album, When the Wind Forgets Your Name, is another polished gem that sounds distinctly Built to Spill yet refreshingly unfamiliar. Recorded and mixed in 2020 with Brazilian tourmates Le Almeida and João Casaes (both of the psychedelic jazz rock band Oruã), the nine tracks skim across genres--as the artists pick up clues from each--and are spun together with purring, resonating guitar textures while settling into a groove of nuanced, earnest rock that sounds both peculiar and venturesome.
