DEBUT ALBUM // RELEASED 2010 BY WHISTLER RECORDS
Erik Hall's tunes are dense and textured, veering from the jaunty "The Way to a Monster's Lair" ... to the minimalist "Flemishing," which unfolds over a hypnotic nine-plus minutes.
As In Tall Buildings, Hall carefully constructs a winning mix of folk, chamber-pop, and experimental composition.
The contemplative nature of In Tall Buildings' music grabs you immediately.
Best of Chicago 2010 ... A promising debut record filled with gorgeous indie-pop.
[Hall's] spacious, handcrafted pop, awash in synthesizers, reverb, and bedroom-recording static, evokes rootless melancholy without wallowing in it.
In Tall Buildings is the aural representation of a pleasantly scattered mind.
