Artist of the Day: The Tallest Man On Earth

The music of Swedish singer-songwriter Kristian Matsson is the kind of music that you make hyperbolic statements of its quality, which would be completely warranted. In my eyes, Matsson is the greatest songwriter in the busienss today. There are two albums released under the Tallest Man On Earth moniker, 2008's Shallow Graves and 2010's The Wild Hunt, both of which are amongst greatest folk albums of the past five years. With a few minor exceptions, Matsson makes his craft with nothing but an acoustic guitar and his hoarse, yet elegant vocal cords.

The Tallest Man On Earth is returning this June with his third LP, entitled There's No Leaving Now. And if the latest track to be released, "1904", is any indicator, then There's No Leaving Now will certainly live up to the monstrous expectations that Matsson's first two albums have developed in fans.
