Damn Tall Buildings (from the album Good Enough!)
Damn Tall Buildings erect their music world with the sound of rural America. The Boston, Massachusetts-based band was born busking on Newbury Street in 2013. Their instrumentation claims Bluegrass heritage as the four-piece carve contemporary into tradition with spit and snarl. Following the success of previous releases, Damn Tall Buildings put the sound of a street corner into the tracks of Good Enough!, the group’s latest live release. A raucous version of Flatt and Scruggs “Rollin’ in My Sweet Baby’s Arms” opens Good Enough! with a blast and keep their string band feet to the floor for a raise-the-roof cover of the 1920’s Blues standard, “Nobody’s Business”. Damn Tall Buildings sing a foot-stomping ode to “Angeline the Baker” and tell tales on “The Ballad of Nigel Williams” as Good Enough! digs in with Bluegrass for “Buried” and tenderly begins the story of “Hold on I’m Comin’ Home” as DTB pick up the pace as the song travels along.
