Charlie Burg’s Infinitely Tall is about spaces — the ones that make, break, shape, and uplift us. The debut album from the Detroit-born singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist takes place across three chapters, each tied to a specific, precious locale: Chapter One in Burg’s childhood home in Detroit; Chapter Two in Syracuse, at his beloved college house; and Chapter Three in the vast expanses of New York City. Across the album’s 15 generous, skyward-looking songs, he augments his bedrock of lo-fi soul and lush indie-pop with piquant, arresting new textures including the forward motion of driving post-punk and the melodic grip of romantic 90s indie-rock. Dazzling and teeming with life, Infinitely Tall is a surprising, wide-reaching next chapter for one of this generation’s most promising young songwriters. Standouts from Burg’s discography include the songs “I Don’t Wanna Be Okay Without You,” “Lovesong (The Way)” feat. The Bluets, and “Lancaster Nights,” among others.
