Built To Spill Played Letterman

Even after reminding all of you to watch Built to Spill on Letterman last night, I completely forgot. So I’ve spent the last three hours waiting for video of it to pop up online, and now that it has, I’m surprised to find out they played “Oh Yeah” from the new record. It’s a fine song, if a bit gloomy and ho-hum for its first half. As the guitars begin to freak out toward the end, I remember that I could watch Doug Martsch play forever, especially if I’m seated comfortably in a chair. After the jump, footage, from when television was still in low definition, of the band playing “You Were Right” on Conan. So good.
