Who: The Tallest Man On Earth from Sweden.
What: The Tallest Man On Earth (aka Kristian Matsson) is looking to follow up 2008s Pitchfork praised Shallow Grave with his new record The Wild Hunt. Doing what he does best, simple yet commanding vocals with an acoustic guitar or banjo to accompany, this guy continues to write a true success story of an energetic, passionate songwriter whose music spreads with great word of mouth. The Wild Hunt will be released on April 13th (April 12th in the UK) via Dead Oceans.
Song: King Of Spain.
