This Tuesday I went to see the "Tallest Man On Earth" at the Highline Ballroom. With a name like the "Tallest Man On Earth" Kristian Matsson is rather scrawny, I have to say. Nevertheless, his was by far one of the best concerts I've ever been to. His new album, "The Wild Hunt" is excellent and he's even better live. Also, did I mention the fact that, despite his scrawniness, he really is quite beautiful? A lot of people say he has a big forehead, but they're just jealous because they can't sing like him.The Tallest Man on Earth and Nurses, on tour together through mid-May, played a show at Highline Ballroom on Tuesday, April 20th. That gig happened a week to the day after Tallest Man's new CD, The Wild Hunt, came out on Dead Oceans. "King of Spain" from that record is reposted above (as are a pair of Nurses tracks, again).
Overall, a great concert. I would definitely recommend listening to his music and seeing him in concert if you ever get the chance. After the concert I made a bet with my friend, Jeff, that he would pay for my wedding if I managed to get Kristian to marry me. I'm working on it... [nothing&excess]
