The Tallest Man On Earth: I Could Drown in Your Kerosene Eyes

Kristian Matsson, better known by his stage name, The Tallest Man on Earth, is an absolutely outstanding songwriter and performer.  The Tallest Man on Earth comes to us from Sweden.  On first instinct one would compare him to Bob Dylan.  He has the unconventional voice, he has the outstanding lyrics.  The comparison is one thrown about more often than it should, and The Tallest Man on Earth is one of the rare performers who is worthy of such a comparison.  However, I think The Tallest Man on Earth will be carving out his own little place in history.

NPR's Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton both listed The Tallest Man on Earth's 2010 release The Wild Hunt on their lists of 2010's best music.  The Tallest Man on Earth is also known for his mesmerizing live performances.

Here's The Tallest Man on Earth performing "Where Do My Bluebird Fly" off 2008's Shallow Grave.
