Bands that Don't Sound like Built To Spill

Editors' Picks

Local heroes are emulated in homage. It's well intentioned, but in art, it quickly leads to creative stagnation. All respect to the enormous influence that Boise band Built to Spill has provided over the years, both locally and nationally, but we're glad to see local bands finally starting to do their own thing instead of attempting to do Built to Spill's thing.
