Water Everywhere

by Big Buildings

Water Everywhere finds Big Buildings in a rare comfort zone, sashaying with ease among the ancient ruins of rock: "Submarine" is chiming and obscure, reminiscent of the glory days of 80's Athens and Hoboken; "Grease Fire" is a Stonesy slab of weary roots.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Here is the second full length LP from Chicago’s Big Buildings. Water Everywhere was recorded late in 2005 by Big Buildings and Jason Ward at the band's former home, The Sweatbox. Ten of the twelve tracks here were recorded live in the living room with subsequent mixing and finishing done at Ward's Prole Arts studio.

After a quick and dirty EP release, This is the Bricks (2004), and the sprawling, off-kilter 19-song Hang Together for All Time (2004), Water Everywhere finds Big Buildings in a rare comfort zone, sashaying with ease among the ancient ruins of rock: "Submarine" is chiming and obscure, reminiscent of the glory days of 80's Athens and Hoboken; "Grease Fire" is a Stonesy slab of weary roots. "Do You Lack Imagination?" is a fitful, punky rave-up; "Invisible Republic" a mystical four-track hallucination.

"Saskatchewan" and "Tuck the Nuts" represent stylistic leaps sideways and into the upper atmosphere for Big Buildings. The usual homespun, Midwestern pop torment is interwoven with a blend of ambiguous lyrical darkness and proto-punk attack. These songs exemplify the flavor of the songwriting on Water Everywhere: infectious and familiar, yet mystical and inscrutable at once.

Though the basic input/output schema remains forever intact, Big Buildings called on some local notables this time around to play different things and create some mischief: David Callahan (The Drovers, Stroby Alliance), Amy Malick (Telenovela), John Roeser (Hot Dog City, Fast Product), Anna Liljas (Stroby Alliance), and Jason Ward all commit instruments to tape on this one.

Water Everywhere comes out on Stars/No Stars Records in Chicago. Big Buildings will be supporting the release with shows across Chicago, the Midwest, and the East Coast.
