Any singer who sounds like Neil Young is fucking cool in our book. Built To Spill showered the singer with praise on the last record Live, when they captured their version of the awesome twenty minute + opus, Cortez The Killer. These three Idaho boys have squeezed out a preview EP with two tracks from their forthcoming full length titled Ancient Melodies of the Future, which drops in July. Strange and The Weather are the two new featured singles, neither of which sound anything alike. Strange is gathering spins on commercial specialty shows, with the typical BTS sound of shifting tempos and sliding guitars, while The Weather is an acoustic based charmer that screams "R.E.M., we listen to you dudes". BTS have always strayed from the normal rock sound, much like Ween or Modest Mouse, and Ancient Melodies will have to be a heavyweight knockout if it is going to top 1999ís studio release, Keep It Like A Secret, which was nothing short of phenomenal. Oh yeah there are two live tracks on this EP, and one of them is the Charlie Brown theme songÖpretty neat.
