In Tall Buildings Violitionist Session

Posted by Frank Krolicki

While passing through Denton, Texas, Chicago's In Tall Buildings (a.k.a. singer-songwriter Erik Hall) recently recorded a Violitionist Session with the great website of the same name, which offers unique takes of three songs as well as three-question interviews with various musicians. The set includes stripped back versions of "The Way to a Monster's Lair" and "Suitor" from ITB's debut record, in addition to an unreleased tune titled "Bawl, Cry, Wail."

Check out Hall's performance of "Bawl, Cry, Wail" below and head to Violitionist for video and free audio downloads of all three tracks. You can also grab a free mp3 of the album version of "The Way to a Monster's Lair" via the Soundcloud widget below. To catch catch ITB live, head out to this year's Taste of Randolph fest in the West Loop on Saturday, June 18th at 3:30 p.m.
