New Video “Love is All” from The Tallest Man on Earth

The new video for “Love is All” (from the album The Wild Hunt), features vintage Super 8 footage compiled by director Johan Stolpe. So often The Tallest Man on Earth’s music is said to be informed by the American landscape, but to watch the video for “Love is All” is to look into those preconceptions and have the images display another side of Kristian Matsson’s origin.

I love the lyrics for this song, so I’m posting them after the break! Read the rest of this entry »

The Tallest Man On Earth Fall Tour!

ttmoe sommar 7The Tallest Man on Earth tour with Bon Iver introduced Kristian Matsson to large audiences across the US in late 2008. In April, he released the critically-acclaimed album, The Wild Hunt, on Dead Oceans and followed it with a seven week, sold-out North American tour. These performances were breathtaking, where Matsson, armed with just a guitar, would cast his spell over reverent audiences every single night. His songs come alive from the stage, and this fall Matsson is returning to the road, visiting the biggest venues he’s played since that tour with Bon Iver.

This fall, sister-label Jagjaguwar will release Bon Iver percussionist S. Carey’s debut solo album, All We Grow. Sean Carey will reunite with Kristian and open each show with a band that includes three percussionists to re-create his album’s depth and texture.

All new tour dates are after the jump.  Tickets go on sale Friday! Read the rest of this entry »
