So I could stay the tallest man in your eyes, babe

Today's post is dedicated to my favorite song by one of my favorite current artists. The Tallest Man On Earth is the stage name of Sweden's Kristian Matsson, a phenomenal folk singer-songwriter who often draws comparisons to Dylan. In 2010 he released, The Wild Hunt, my top ranked album of the year. While that whole album (and really every song he has released) is just fantastic, my favorite Tallest Man On Earth song comes from his first album, Shallow Grave.

This video for "The Gardner" is from the French website La Blogotheque and their Take Away Shows series, where artists perform their songs in unique settings. This particular video was taken at a place called Music Inn in Greenwich Village before Kristian's show later that night with Bon Iver.

If you like this, you can grab one of his songs from his most recent EP, Sometimes The Blues Is Just A Passing Bird, from Pitchfork here.


  1. I would be interested in more of his music.

  2. For sure. I'll be home in a couple weeks, and we can figure it out then.
