Built In Sun is a new project from Joe Plummer (Cold War Kids/The Shins/Modest Mouse/Black Heart Procession) and Pall Jenkins (Black Heart Procession/Three Mile Pilot/Mr. Tube and the Flying Objects).

I met up with Joe and Pall in South Park. We talked about the new album, how it came to be, the songwriting process, and what we can look forward to from the band:


Joe was working on a collection of music during breaks between drumming for The Shins and Cold War Kids releases. Joe asked Pall if he would work on some vocals and lyrics for a track. Pall said yes, and what came out of that collaboration sounded so good that a band was born.

Built In Sun’s self-titled release is out now on Piaptk Records. It features artists like Ariel Pink, the Blank Tapes, Flaming Lips, Graves, Mike Watt, and more. Get more info on Built In Sun.

In Your Neighborhood takes a deeper look into the people, places, events, art, recording, culture and causes that make up the fabric of the modern-day local music scene.
