Amoeba Review

Brad Schelden, Hollywood 12/07/2012

I was not really sure about this dude for a while. It took him a while to grow on me. I kept hearing everyone talk about how great and brilliant he was. And he is all of those things. Kristian Matsson is The Tallest Man On Earth. He is from Sweden. I was really obsessed with all things Swedish a couple of years ago. It seemed like every band I liked came from Sweden. My love of Sweden had died down a bit until I started listening to this guy. He reminds me a bit of Jose Gonzales. But not as dark. He is clearly influenced by Nick Drake and Bob Dylan.

Not too many young artists have the chutzpah, strum and sneer to take up the mantle of Dylan, but Swedish singer-songwriter Kristian Matsson comes pretty close. Like Dylan, he evokes a summer-y yearning for folk roots and a jaded innocence that's so captivating it drives all other music out of your head when you hear it. The third album from the Tallest Man on Earth establishes his scenic outpost high atop the indie-folk heap, with a concise set of focused epics that achieve most of their glory with just his powerful acoustic guitar and cracked, yearning voice. The plonk of a battered piano and a lonesome pedal steel let in shafts of dusky light here and there. At once free and fatalistic, joyful and resigned, There's No Leaving Now is a great folk statement for those who love the real thing.
