Skinny Women Shaking - Big Buildings

Think of Big Buildings as a palette cleanser, a tall, cool glass of water to chase all those rich, flashy new wave bands out of your system. These Chicago boys sound like they were born in a bar and never leave except to run out for cigarettes or when the Old Style tap runs dry. Their country/blues-based rock n' roll has a slight punk kick--reminiscent of The Replacements or perhaps how Wilco might sound if they weren't trying to make art.


"Skinny Women Shaking" comes from their record Hang Together For All Time. I'm in awe of this song. However lazy it seems, know that it takes effort to sound this effortless, talent to sound this ramshackle, guts to sound this fucked up.

Honey, I think you know I'm a snob. But I should know better than to imply an insult to Brooklyn boys.
