Built to Spill: October 12, 2009 Webster Hall – Flac and MP3 Downloads

In the opening night of their four-show run in NYC, Built to Spill proved again why they are one of the most compelling bands of the last decade and a half. Opening with a short but relaxed tuning jam that led into “Into Your Mind”, the band worked through a setlist evenly dispersed between old classics (“The Plan”, “Sidewalk”, “Carry The Zero”) with a handful of songs from the excellent new album There Is No Enemy. Built to Spill continues to sound as fresh as they did when we first saw them at Tramps in 1996 — Doug Martsch seems completely at ease with his oeuvre and if the new release is any indication, he has no plan to cease the quality output. With three more nights in NYC, we expect to celebrate that fact.

Acidjack recorded this set from an outstanding location at this venue — with a microphone clamp on the center balcony. The result is a recording of outstanding clarity and presence. Enjoy!

The October 13 show (tonight) was recorded and is coming soon. We also expect to record the following two nights at Music Hall.

    Thank you for this great recording. I am going to be seeing them at the 40 Watt in Athens next Tuesday. This helps tide me over.

    I would love to hear Doug perform “Cracked and Crazed” live sometime. It was a song he performed for the soundtrack to The Bigtop, and is available here

    Excellent bootleg. Any show where they play “Sidewalk” is a winner for me. And the versions of “Done” and “Hindsight” from their then-new album – the last to feature Scott Plouf and Brett Nelson – smoke. Seriously, what a gig. Thank you so much
