Built to Spill returns to Eugene with a new CD
Built to Spill is back at the WOW Hall on Monday for a concert with the Prids and Brett Netson.
The indie-rock band out of Boise has a new CD out, "You in Reverse." Since the last album's release five years ago, Built to Spill took a year and a half off and returned with a new lineup, according to a WOW Hall news release.
"You in Reverse," the release says, "arrives as the most collaborative record in the band's 13-year history. Each musician wrote his own parts, and half of the material incorporates segments the band wrote together during jam sessions."
Guest musicians on the album include Quasi's Sam Coomes on organ and Brett Netson on guitar - although Netson has since become the band's fifth member.
The album "is a sprawling, exciting, natural and raw piece of work," according to a JamBase review.
Tickets are $16 in advance, $18 at the door, and showtime is 8 p.m. The WOW Hall is at 291 W. Eighth Ave.
Cleaves brings 'Unsung' tour to Sam Bond's
Promoting his new album of songs written by his friends and colleagues, "Unsung," Americana artist Slaid Cleaves comes to Eugene for a Thursday show at Sam Bond's Garage.
"Unsung," recorded in Nashville and released on Rounder Records, has received a warm welcome from critics at The Boston Globe, Entertainment Weekly and the Los Angeles Daily News.
"The results are stunning," the May review in the Globe says. "The songs are far from being standards or even well-known; in fact, some of them are previously unrecorded. ...
`And while none of them came from Cleaves's pen, they all sound like they could have. The songs are suffused with that remarkable combination of grace and a 'sense of resignation and sadness' (as Cleaves puts it in one of his song notes) that he so often evokes in his own work."
The show starts at 9 p.m., and tickets are $12. Sam Bond's is at 407 Blair Blvd.
