The Tallest Man on Earth

Swedish artist Kristian Matsson, better known as the Tallest Man on Earth, is back with a new album, this time critically acclaimed and exemplifying serious maturity in the singer/songwriter. The Wild Hunt surely includes some of this year's most compelling folk music. And with good reason. Matsson's gruff vocals meet crafty finger-picking and vigorous strumming. In "King of Spain", a lively pace reminiscent of galloping hordes provide foundation for sassily romantic and pensive lyrics. It's far from a narrative but as the Tallest Man digs deeper into his languished fantasy he projects a song of earnest and daring.
