The Tallest Buildings: The Next Band To Love

The Tallest Buildings has a four song EP entitled “Post Traumatic Address” dedicated to the destruction of a family much in the same way the Microphones capture life and death. PTA embodies abstract melodies over floating guitar and violin tracks. Their drum beats recall The Dodo’s in their stick clicks and sparse locations throughout the tracks. Band members include Cameron Mahoney (lead vocals, guitar, piano) Austin Peters (vocals, drums, guitar, keyboards) Alexis Mahler (vocals, drums, violin, glockenspiel). Vocalist Cameron Mahoney is the perfect indie front man with his melodious crooning. After what seems a very long intro the band morphs into a rock band but only a glimpse of one, then they change their mind and try something else. Their odd song direction and intricate parts evoke Animal Collective and Van Dyke Parks “Song Cycle”.

Well done.
