mp3: The Tallest Man on Earth – ‘Untitled New Song’/’Weather Of A Killing Kind’
By now we all know this isn’t Bob Dylan and a moniker. Yet Kristian Matsson does have a voice that ebbs and flows like a desperately ruminative, harsh-toned American, when really he is a patriotic Swede.
He over-emphasises the pronunciation of the ‘er’ phoneme every single time it comes around; in ‘over’ and ‘nervous’, exactly like Dylan does “at the head of the chamber of commerce”. Like any worthy folk singer Matsson is a master of cadences, his best songs are plastered with plurals and perfects.
Have a listen below to an untitled new song from a live Gothenburg show in May, utilising a full band for the first time (via TwentyFourBit).
And ‘Weather Of a Killing Kind’, the sixth installment of Adult Swim’s weekly mp3 music series Adult Swim Singles Program. Head over to the Adult Swim site on Monday to bag the free mp3.
