WATCH // The Tallest Man On Earth Returns to KEXP for a Live Session, Covers David Bazan

The Tallest Man On Earth first played KEXP back in 2009 when their video series had just launched. Perhaps you remember his performance of “Where Do My Bluebird Fly,” a video that now holds almost two million views. KEXP recently beckoned Kristian back for a second performance and he obliged, giving us a four-song set. His return includes three songs off his new album, There’s No Leaving Now, and a wonderful cover of David Bazan’s “Lost My Shape.” Watch above!

Kristian plays four songs off There’s No Leaving Now for David Dye and chats about the record, playing with Montezumas and the origins of his solo career. The show starts with Kristian’s performance of “To Just Grow Away” at XPN Live Friday Free at Noon Concert, in which he played to a sold-out crowd.

“These 10 songs, like those before them, dazzle and shimmy and sulk, as Matsson continues to conjure images of a young Dylan projecting his voice through a megaphone.” – NPR

“The piano-driven title track is a continuation of something Matsson hinted at on his last full-length (The Wild Hunt); it’s a subtle departure, an assertion that he won’t be creatively contained.” – Creative Loafing
