Akinetic, the new album from Chicago songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Erik Hall's
one-man polymathic project In Tall Buildings sees its creator plunge headlong into allegories
of communication, loss, impulse, vice, and mass-denialism. With the addition of
producer and engineer Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Iron & Wine) Hall crashes through the
aforementioned subject matter with brightness and lucidity, yielding his most intelligent
and focused songwriting yet. Working out of his house with Deck in Pilsen, Chicago,
Hall's efforts yield ten tracks of spacious and textured handmade pop, comprising one of
the most sharply written and deftly recorded home-studio albums in memory.
Due out March 2nd 2018 on Western Vinyl, Akinetic could not have transpired in any
other time. Since his 2015 LP, Driver, Erik Hall has produced records for ambient artist
Justin Walter and labelmates Lean Year, all while touring perpetually and sowing the
seeds for his own new album. Where his previous titles were natural documents of his
musicianship and songcraft, Akinetic arose from deliberate intent to write in concrete pop
forms, lyrically informed by what he observed of modern culture, namely its fixation on
technology-driven pseudo-progress at the cost of direct communication. "Rather than
merely dwell in an inviting musical bed," Hall states, "I wanted to write songs with
intentionality that would more directly declare themselves to a listener instead of just
passively inviting them in.
