Built to Spill is an American indie rock band from Boise, Idaho. It is considered one of the most influential groups of American indie rock during the 1990s. The style of the group is characterized by complex melodies as well as great instrumental virtuosity.

The French Tips
Les French Tips, a trio of women playing dance-punk bangers in Boise, Idaho. What began as a way to release pent-up rage through music has evolved into a refuge from the personal and collective challenges of being human over the past five years. The French Tips fuel their sound with an abundance of influences. Punk rock, post punk, disco, dance, pop, funk, surf and doo wop are infused into the rock sound they honed on two albums, 2019's It's the Tips and 2022's All the Rage. It's the Tips is a a heartbreaking eight-song album, with heavy hooks and fevered dance beats that liven up rightly rabid songs. A veritable feast of fourth wave feminist anthems, punk rock bangers and surfer love songs. The year it was released, It's the Tips was the most listened to record on Boise community radio station, KRBX. Their second album, released in May 2022, features on its cover a garish pink cake made by the talented Boise artist Sugar Librarian. All the Rage is a fire starter wrapped in pink cream. The album is a multi-course meal with heart-pounding dance beats, heavy guitar riffs and the agile, intertwined vocals of the three musicians.
