The Tallest Man on Earth is Kristian Matsson (from Sweden). Lovely folky songs about nature and love and other important things. His voice is sort of Bob Dylan-y which normally I don't love but on him it works. I read someone likening his voice to him doing Bob Dylan "the way Bob Dylan did Woody Guthrie" which I think is pretty great.
His music is gentle and thoughtful and inspiring. I find it perfect for background music while working on projects or painting or sitting around drinking tea with the cats.
Curtis and I saw him perform at the Middle East back in the spring. If you have a chance to see him, please do! He's charming and funny and adorable and a great showman.

Bonus! While I was scouring the internet for an image to steal for this post I came across these show posters from Landland dot net. They're by Dan Black(of Landland) and I love them very much. Look at those dirt layers! Look at that giant watermelon! Look at those chairs! Look at that composition - so tall! So many things I like. Too bad they are Sold Out!
