2000's Jams (+5): Built To Spill "Goin' Against Your Mind" (2006)

It's happening! 2000's hurrah.

Between 2004 and 2006, Wilco's "Spiders" kicked off a mini-wave of kraut influenced indie rock. Doug "Dougie" Martsch unintentionally indulged in this area, resulting in Built To Spill's best song since Keep It Like A Secret. To some it may resemble just another extended psychedelic jam session, but the inflation of energy goes far beyond basement frat-jamming, especially the quiet section in the middle. "When I was a kid I saw a light / Floating high above the trees one night / What was an alien / Turned out to be just god"
