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.)

6. “Still Flat” from “The Normal Years” (1996)
This song originally appeared on the “Red Hot + Bothered” compilation, but is also on “The Normal Years,” a collection of Built to Spill’s b-sides and rarities. The studio version has a cool horn part at the end that I love, but I couldn’t find that on YouTube, so you get Doug Martsch doing it solo. (The second song he does is a cover of Dinosaur Jr’s “Tarpit,” in case you’re wondering. Bonus!)
