General Comments / Reviews:

Everything a Built To Spill fan could hope for. - DJ Stace

Dotted with cool surprises and intricately plotted melodies, the veteran indie band’s Sub Pop debut shakes things up without breaking their pattern of low-key, late-period releases. - Pitchfork

When the Wind Forgets Your Name feels like Martsch is more self-assured than ever. Like, he finally realized his position and learned how to play to his strengths as a songwriter. These strengths–especially a confident delivery–have been refined by age and experience, helping to produce the same version of Built to Spill, albeit enhanced, that can still contend with the best albums in their discography. - PopMatters

Release Notes:

When the Wind Forgets Your Name is the ninth studio album by American indie rock band Built to Spill. It was released on September 9, 2022, by Sub Pop. Wikipedia - wikipedia

FCCs: 8

RIYL: Built to Spill, Neil Young

Play: All but FCCs, Favs Rated with up to *****

1. Gonna Lose 02:33 - Midtempo epic rocker.
2. Fool’s Gold 04:01 - Slow to Midtempo, reverb-ey strummer.
3. **** Understood 04:02 - Uptempo, REM-ish and buzzing. Martsch’s lyric styling is great here.
4. Elements 05:48 - Spacey keyboard overlay interludes, slow to midtempo.
5. Rocksteady 05:06 - Slow, repetetive, angular, buzzy, vocals forward.
6. **** Spiderweb 05:23 - Jangly alt-rock pop goodness. Like a warm blanket of late 80’s REM.
7. *** Never Alright 04:50 - Uptempo buzzing power chord rocker. Killer harmonic hook. Harmonic chaos over a steady AC/DC rhythm section.
8. Alright 04:59 FCC “Fuck” - Slower, layered, soaring buzzsaw guitar and keyboard.
9. *** Comes a Day 08:26 - Midtepo, vast buzzsaw guitar intro gives way to uptempo fuzzy pop jangle rocker. A little long, maybe.
