Today on Frequency, we’re counting down the top 10 Built to Spill songs leading up to the band’s show tonight in Bend. (More details on that show here.)

5. “Velvet Waltz” from “Perfect From Now On” (1997)
Yes, this song is more than nine minutes long. And yes, you are busy. But you really should take the time to listen to this, one of the epic, slow-burning tunes from Built to Spill’s general-consensus classic, “Perfect From Now On.” It’s amazing, and it’s not the last song from “Perfect” that we’ll see in this countdown.

Plus, the sound quality on this video is incredible, and should be experienced through your headphones. And it was shot in Eugene. And “Perfect From Now On” is probably my wife’s favorite album of all time, so it should probably be yours, too. And … well, just listen, OK?
