C&L's Late Nite Music Club: The 50 State Strategy With Built To Spill (ID)

Doug Martsch and Built to Spill, the darlings of Boise. Choosing a song was arduous because there are so many great ones; Big Dipper and Twin Falls come to mind first.

After disbanding the short-lived-yet-loved Treepeople in 1995, Martsch started Built to Spill along with Brett Netson and Ralf Youtz. Despite a number of lineup changes, the band ended up both the most popular and lasting of the 90s slacker-pop groups (though I don't think I'd be saying that if Pavement had stayed together.)

Pour some of your forty-ounce out for Andy Capps, the drummer heard here on 'Car', who passed away three years ago last week.

Every Monday, C&L's Late Nite Music Club will feature an act from every state, alphabetically by state, as part of LNMC's 50 State Strategy. Know a band or artist that you think is the best in their state? Email suggestions to latenitemusicclub [at] gmail.com. Next week: Illinois.
