The Tallest Man On Earth

Beautiful new sounds from a personal favorite, The Tallest Man On Earth, to hit shelves and inboxes June 12th.  Its been such a huge year for some of my go to artists, including M. Ward, Andrew Bird, and Sharon Van Etten.  This record is sounding like it will fit nicely next to those on what is shaping up to be a phenomenal year for music.  Pre order here.   

From Dead Oceans:
"There's No Leaving Now, the newest record from Kristian Matsson's aptly titled moniker, The Tallest Man On Earth, finds the Swedish troubadour trading in the sense of urgency that fueled his first two records for a confidently relaxed approach. The results are paralyzing. The songwriting is every bit as detailed and captivating as his previous work, but this time around, Matsson is showing a few more cards. The music of the Tallest Man on Earth has traditionally centered around the power of performance and has served as a reminder that directness is the best course of action. However, as Matsson adds layers of arrangement to these songs they reveal a sense of character not previously featured in past recordings. This record solidifies the beginning of an incredible journey told through stories of hope and defeat, loss and love. Matsson has us right where he wants us. There's no leaving now." - Brad Cook
