Boomkat Product Review:
In this day and age, it must surely be getting harder and harder to make yourself heard when you're just some solitary guy holding an acoustic guitar. The Tallest Man On Earth (aka Kristian Matsson) is just that however, and even on record he's a lone presence, strumming or fingerpicking his way through Dylanesque verses like it was 1964. Although in theory what Matsson does is out of sync with the times, and not particularly fashionable, he does it all so well that none of that remotely matters. His previous album, Shallow Grave, set various influential blogs and forums alight with talk of what a great talent this man is, and The Wild Hunt consolidates the validity of that early buzz. You can well imagine these scratchy, rough and wonderfully warm recordings working their way into the hearts of a broader audience in the same way that a couple of years back Jose Gonzalez did - the difference here though is that Matsson boasts considerably more songwriting clout than his fellow Swede. Whether it be the brilliantly eloquent strum-along 'Burden Of Tomorrow' or the delicately picked 'Thousand Ways', Matsson sounds like a singer-songwriter in the classic mould - fearless, bold, wordy and blessed with an enviably natural way with a melody. Highly recommended.
