Build to Spill released “Understood”, the second single from When the wind forgets your name, the debut album for the new label Sub Pop. The track was inspired by Evel Knievel’s 1974 unsuccessful jump over the Snake River Canyon in Build to Spill, home of fighter Doug Martch in Twin Falls, Idaho.
As previously reported, When the wind forgets your name will premiere September 9 and feature a new Build to Spill lineup with Martsch backed by Brazilian musicians Le Almeida and João Casaes. Martsch is currently on tour with other rhythms, including bassist Melanie Radford and drummer Teresa Esguerra.
“Do When the wind forgets your name It was a great experience,” said Martsch. “I had an incredible time traveling and recording with Almeida and Casaes. I also learned a lot about Brazilian culture and music while creating it. My Portuguese was terrible when I first met Almeida and Casaes, but by the end of the year it was even worse.”
