The Tallest man on Earth's 'King of Spain' is the second album (excluding 1 EP)released by the exiting Swedish indie/folk/blues singer Kristian Matsson. The former lead singer for the band Montezumas, began his solo career in 2006 and has continually delivered spectacular critically acclaimed pieces.
In this instance the producer and artist have coordinated well in creating an album in which each track demonstrating his ability to compose lyrically emotive pieces, play technically challenging and conceptually brilliant acoustic melodies all of which serve to frame his provocatively strained, rustic faux-deep-south vocals.
The Tallest Man on Earth's 'King of Spain' album would appeal to a wide variety of music lovers crossing over genres in the same way as Bob Dylan enjoyed popular appeal. I would recommend sampling his tracks on his my space profile: http://www.myspace.com/thetallestmanonearth give them a listen and then start booking tickets and buying albums.
