North American Tour Kicks Off March 23 Tickets On Sale Now

In Tall Buildings, aka Chicago songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Erik Hall, has released his new album, Akinetic on Western Vinyl. Produced alongside Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Iron & Wine, Califone) at Hall’s Chicago home studio, Akinetic yields ten new tracks of spacious and textured handmade pop, plunging headlong into allegories of communication, loss, impulse, vice, and mass-denialism. 

 

Hall wrote and recorded Akinetic between stints producing records for label mates Lean Year and ambient artist Justin Walter. A venerable one-man ensemble, Hall performed every instrument heard on the album with the exception of a lovely guest vocal appearance from Heather Woods Broderick and occasional looming woodwinds from Elliot Bergman (NOMO, Wild Belle). With the addition of a kindred and veteran co-producer in Deck, Akinetic is one of the most sharply written and deftly recorded home-studio albums in memory, and the greatest height yet reached for In Tall Buildings.
