Built to Be Re-Done; A Built to Spill Cover Compilation

Like them or not, there is absolutely no denying the grand impact of Built to Spill on modern indie rock music. The band's rambling, catchy guitar solos and clever lyricism have inspired everyone from Death Cab for Cutie and Modest Mouse to countless DIY bands. In an attempt to pay homage to the ever-eminent band, Yakima, Washington's Gloom have put together an eclectic compilation of Built to Spill covers. Featuring artists like Great Grandpa, Seacats, Smol Data, Grandad, Jim Shorts, and more.

These bands breathe a new life into Built to Spill's evergreen songs, putting their own distinct spin on timeless indie rock anthems. Throughout the collection we hear everything from lofi bedroom pop renditions to all-out electrified, authentic, yet updated rock recreations of Built to Spill classics.

The compilation is free, but should there be any money paid for the album, all proceeds will be donated to the Trevor Project - an LGBTQIA+ suicide prevention organization.

We're premiering the compilation below; give it a listen.
