The Tallest Man On Earth hails from Sweden and plays some rather light-hearted, beautiful folk with a rather unique voice.

Only one album under his belt but it is awesome

Saw him with John Vanderslice. He kicked it. He is also one of the most awkward performers I have ever seen. And truly not the tallest man on earth.
#7
He's one of my favorite artists in the last few years. He reminds me so much of Dylan it's unbelievable.
#8
Absolutely great guy! Love the musical component to his songs so much...not too fond of his lyrics though

first album was pretty wonderful. haven't heard the new one as of this moment, but i have high expectations for it.
#12
The lyrics on his second album appears to be a lot more mature and poetic than the first. It also sounds a lot "fuller" than the first. I love the first for it's simplicity and down-to-earth nature and the second for its beautiful narrative.

I just found out about this guy two weeks ago and i've listened to him every day since. I like the new album better than the first one, although that one is really nice as well.

Great music... he has awesome fingerstyle chops and i love his lyrics.
#16
Saw him last night on Dylan's old block. It was scary good. Scary.
Oh yeah.

He is such an incredible songwriter. I'm playing Wild Hunt non-stop.

The Wild Hunt is pretty good. maybe a 6.5/10. nothing compared to the other albums.

I was going to post a thread for this guy in A&I, but was pleasantly surprised to see that he already had a thread. I'm digging the S/T a ton right now, he's a phenomenal songwriter.

I have Shallow Grave and I like this songwriting and delivery, but the production is horrendous. He really needs to work with a producer who knows what the hell they are doing. I'd like to hear what Rubin could do for him. I haven't heard The Wild Hunt.

He also has a Daytrotter session out with a piano version of "I Wont Be Found', and a banjo cover of Dylan's 'I Want You'. It's very good.

Daytrotter people, check it out.

as in Rick Rubin? he'd probably make him sound terrible.

I'm not a "folky guy" but I do enjoy quite a bit of folk


nice. i guess it would be safe to say that if you are a dylan fan you should definitely dig this guy. most of the people who dont like him have a problem with his voice (which can be pretty rough), but his lyrics are just amazing.
#39
man.
when i started that song up i just wasn't sure, but by the end of it i was sold.

no matter what instrumentation he adds, i'm sure this album is going to be one of the best of 2012.
none of his albums disappoint. none of them. i'd bet that this one will be just as good, if not better, than at least a couple of his others.
#40
yeah i cant imagine the new album being disappointing at all. the song isnt really anything special but im sure i'll come to like it more when listening to the whole album.
