The Tallest Man On Earth
The Wild Hunt - Dead Oceans
FILTER Grade: 86%
By Breanna Murphy on March 8, 2010
With a strange, uncharacteristic voice that may attract many for the same reasons it repulses some (and it’s those in the latter set that truly miss out), The Tallest Man on Earth serves lesson number one in field recordings and folk: that the surface should never be the sole selling point. While his latest may not be as triumphant as his debut LP, Shallow Grave, The Wild Hunt is a worthy effort indeed. Underneath his boots of Spanish leather, Swede Kristian Matsson’s tightly wound creek-bed tales declare Americana a universal language.
