The Tallest Man in the World

I’ve come a little late to The Tallest Man on Earth, but after being pointed to his second album, The Wild Hunt,  by my friend Hannah (literary agent to the (rock) stars), I’m now totally obsessed. As Tim Dunlop points out, Swedish singer/songwriter Kristian Masson’s vocals are Dylanesque, but hey, that’s not always a bad thing, especially when the songs are so beautifully crafted and full of life. Like the new Justin Townes Earle album, Harlem River Blues, this is music that understands its history but isn’t bound by it, and it’s wonderful.
