Tallest Man on Earth

“Quite simply, the Tallest Man on Earth has an impossible voice. Looking a bit like Production Simple’s Joe Argabrite, Kristian Matsson’s “Tallest Man” status must surely come from his voice because no mere human should be able to sound like this (that, and it clearly does not come from his height). Although I was late to the game on TMOE, his debut Shallow Grave was amongst the best albums of 2008. Having fallen in love with the Dylanesque croons of Shallow Grave, I was beyond pleasantly surprised to find that live, it gives way to a penetrating growl of emotion that made the audience feel that Matsson was reliving each moment and truly experiencing every word as it was spoke.” [Backbeat Sandbar]

That review, and the pictures in this post, come from The Tallest Man On Earth‘s Bowery Ballroom show the other night (Red Cortez opened). The Tallest Man will be back, next time at MHOW during the Northside Festival. More pictures, the setlist, and a video from Bowery, below…

“In the end, it was a beautiful performance for a beautiful night, and it was fantastic to see an artist when even on the bill with Bon Iver didn’t manage to sell out, and those in attendance were excessively rude, could come to the Bowery with just a guitar and pack the house ad keep them quiet and attentive.” [Backbeat Sandbar]
