While they prepare the follow-up to their 2010 debut album, Chicago's In Tall Buildings have cut a couple of tracks for a special vinyl 7" to be released on Record Store Day (April 16th). For the A side, they looked to fellow Windy City musicians Cains & Abels for inspiration, covering "Warm Rock" off the band's 2009 debut, Call Me Up. On the flip side is an alternate, "bedroom pop" version of "The Way to A Monster's Lair," one of the strongest tracks off In Tall Buildings' debut. Grab the 7" next month, but in the meantime you can hear/download their take on "Warm Rock" below.
In Tall Buildings also have a few hometown shows coming up. Catch them supporting Sharon Van Etten and Little Scream at Lincoln Hall on Saturday, April 9th, and for an in-store at Saki a week later on April 16th to celebrate the release of Warm Rock. They will also be performing at an upcoming installment of Second City's "The Late Live Show."
