Some sauntering songs about all sorts from Built To Spill. Ancient Melodies Of The Future is the 2001 classic from the Idahoans and it's getting reissued just for you. It's full of slacked out guitars, loose and groovy drums and Doug Martsch's trade mark drawling croon. If you like their other stuff, Modest Mouse, The Pixies, The Decemberists and all things indie-rock then pick it up, it will not disappoint. Out on vinyl LP from Music On Vinyl.

7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 28th July 2015

“Built To Spill’s fifth album “Ancient Melodies From The Future” opens up with “Strange” which, aside from Doug Martsch’s distinctive voice, sounds like Quasi due to the distorted organ, specifically their “Featuring Birds” era. This, of course, is a good thing.

Most Built To Spill albums have quite a few lengthy tracks which is where this one differs. There’s still the sleepy melodies and the layers of guitar but they seem to have tried a more songy approach here. “The Host” and the fab “Trimmed and Burning” certainly seem to suggest as much. It was an approach they tried with more success on their second, and best, album “There’s Nothing Wrong With Love”, though this is still good, like.
