The Built to Spill singer-guitarist says this first-ever solo album was inspired by country-blues fingerpickers like Fred McDowell, and sure enough, you can hear echoes of ancient blues dudes in the acoustic slide-guitar work on tunes like ”Window” and ”Offer.” But this is no slavish tribute album; these 10 originals (plus one McDowell cover) never settle for tired, predictable chord progressions or ”My baby done left me” cliches. Who would have guessed Martsch could make something his own while employing such an overcopied sound? Now you know.
