Lab Overview

The Tallest Man On Earth is the stage name of Swedish singer-songwriter Kristian Matsson. He is primarily a folk musician, drawing ample comparisons to Bob Dylan, but perhaps a bit more coherent. (Sorry, Bob.) He claims his primary inspiration from the creator of the “high, lonesome sound” of bluegrass musician Roscoe Holcomb, but also rates Emmylou Harris, Feist, and Cat Power as influences. 2008 saw his debut LP Shallow Grave (Mexican Summer), the success of which lead to an opening slot on Bon Iver’s tour. After much personal change across three records on Dead OceansI Love You. It’s A Fever Dream. is his first for Rivers/Birds, and is a frank discussion of the bits and pieces that make up his inner monologue. There are grim moments and wrought metaphors, but they are often punctuated by moments of crystal clarity. “Hotel Bar” is alternate-picked guitar that approaches and retreats, delicate string flourishes and self-assuring lyrics. “The Running Styles Of New York” is an electric number, scowling guitars and slabs of piano. “My Dear” is vibrant fingerpicking over the softest kick drum I’ve ever heard, “I’m a Stranger Now” is a dramatic harmonica-led folk workout, the instrument gets a chance to stretch out on “Waiting For My Ghost”. This record is pressed on 'coke bottle clear' vinyl and is packaged in a gatefold sleeve.
