Free Throw

Built to Spill front man Doug Martsch on playing basketball, watching television, and getting poked in the eyeball

Recuperated enough to lead Built to Spill on a four-month tour of the U.S., Martsch says he's musically reinvigorated enough to bring the band into studios in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Austin along the way to record at least a half-dozen new songs. Though still dealing with double vision and a scar on his retina that likely will never go away, he says that in some strange way, he's grateful the injury occurred.

Built to Spill: Better than a poke in the eye.

"Now I go to bed thinking about music again. After this thing, I've really kinda been put back on my right course."
