91.9 WFPK Presents
THE TALLEST MAN ON EARTH
Thursday, June 2, 8 p.m.
315 W. Broadway, Louisville 40202
“The music of Kristian Matsson (who records as the Tallest Man on Earth) doesn't carry the same loneliness of other heartbroken folkies; Matsson's music, instead, has solitude. Loneliness is a condition, a place you end up and from which you are eager to leave, but solitude is a choice. Like Henry James or Emily Dickinson, who best detail the workings of their mind when they are cloistered away from the world, Matsson is more concerned with a wellspring of autonomous thought rather than the chirpings of modern society.” – Pitchfork
“What's Matsson's secret? Musically, it is hard to tell. For all the influence of Bob Dylan, Nick Drake and their folk antecedents in his sound, he mostly comes across as a one-man Mumford and Sons, albeit replacing the biblical imagery with glimpses of the natural world. His voice has much the same husk and growl, his guitar-playing a similar formulaic attack as he flips between stampeding chords and fluttering arpeggios.” – The Guardian
