Song Of The Day: Built To Spill, “Life In Vain”

Built To Spill

In 2017, Built To Spill served as Daniel Johnston‘s backing band on his farewell tour. A suitable choice, as leader Doug Martsch championed Johnston by recording and performing his songs. The year after the touring, the band properly recorded a handful of the songs. To pay tribute to their friend and mentor, they will be releasing¬†Built To Spill Plays The Songs Of Daniel Johnston, which contains eleven superb but more obscure Johnston numbers. The latest taste from the album, “Life In Vain,” is a simply delightful romp though a dark and thoughtful number taken from his 1994 album, Fun.
