If you’ve seen Buildings (or BLDGS) live, you know how much their shows can feel like spiritual experience. When the lights fall, the trippy projections provide the visual aid as the dashiki-clad bandmembers take you on a sonic journey that feels like some sort of mystical moment. The dashikis are mostly gone now, but the essence remains. The band’s jams are anchored by timepiece David Rjich’s drumming and Nick McCarthy’s rumbling bass-work. Collin Crowe’s meandering guitar melodies subtly lead you down a path at a pace that alternates between loping and frenetic. Tomorrow night, the trio join their labelmates Imperial China, Big Gold Belt, Hume and The Cornel West Theory for what should be a pretty exciting evening at the Black Cat, the Sockets Showcase. A few days ago we invited the band over to play a few songs for us, and they pulled the veil back on these two new ones. Enjoy. The band performs “Tiny Mountains” after the jump.
