You get the car, I'll get the night off.....

The ever-wonderful Built to Spill is back in action after a five year hiatus since the release of 'Ancient Melodies of the Future' in 2001 (and the two plus years of touring that followed) with a new song "Goin' Against Your Mind" available on iTunes and a new record 'You in Reverse' dropping on April 11th. From the sound of this one track (and a second called "Traces" that leaked a few weeks back) the boys are back to 'Perfect from Now On' form taking their time to build riffs and melodies over 7 to 8 minute spans. There's word that they band even dabbles with a little reggae on one of the tracks. Here's the track listing:

01. Goin' Against Your Mind

03. Liar
04. Saturday
