Built to Spill Caustic Resin was an EP released by indie rock bands Built to Spill and Caustic Resin. The EP was less a split release by both bands and more a collaboration between the bands.

The album attributes the first two tracks to Built to Spill, the third to Caustic Resin and the last to Tae Won Yu from his time in the band Kicking Giant. It also lists Brett Netson as performing guitar and vocals on "Shit Brown Eyes" (Caustic Resin). Todd Dunnigan is listed as playing organ on "When Not Being Stupid Is Not Enough" and moog on "One Thing".

The album was originally released with a cover featuring a photo featuring newly hatched fish larva and eggs,[1] which had been found in a trash can. However, the photo's owner complained, and the cover art was changed to the image shown here.

The album is Up Records release UP018.
