The Tallest Man on Earth released one of 2008's most powerful records, one that Pitchfork praised, calling Kristian Matsson "a natural-born folksinger, earnest, clever, and comforting." Shallow Grave could not have been more simple, just Matsson's commanding vocals with an acoustic guitar or banjo, recorded at his home in Dalarna, Sweden. Although the album was released on the Swedish label Gravitation without the help of widespread distribution, the story of The Tallest Man on Earth spread far and wide through word of mouth.
The Tallest Man on Earth - It Will Follow the Rain
How is everybody missing the amazing musicianship and focusing on the abstract concept of the video. Have any of you listened to any of TMOE's lyrics? By no means do they paint a clear picture, nobody expected a video with plot points and subtitles for you to follow along. What TMOE does best is putting poetry to fingerpicked guitar, and he quite simply adds a visual element to match the music in this video. THIS IS ART, ENJOY IT GOD DAMMIT.
