Sweden’s The Tallest Man On Earth Channels Bob Dylan on New Album

Written by Daniel Clarke on March 17, 2010

Swedish folk troubadour The Tallest Man On Earth (aka. Kristian Matsson) will release his second full-length, The Wild Hunt, this 16th April on Dead Oceans (Akron/Family, Dirty Projectors, Califone) through Inertia.

It is impossible to discuss The Tallest Man on Earth’s music without acknowledging Bob Dylan. The seemingly effortlessness, the melodic sensibility and the deft lyricism all recall Dylan’s early years. But when you witness the Tallest Man on Earth perform live, you are watching a man possessed. The energy pours out with every word. Full of intensity and raw emotion, he paces the stage, bringing the audience into the palm of his hand, completely lost in his songs.

The Tallest Man On Earth’s ‘The Wild Hunt’ is out 16th April on Dead Oceans. Download a free mp3 of “King Of Spain” here. (Or you can listen to it below)
