Dark Bird Is Home



Early on, Kristian Matsson, the Swedish singer and songwriter better known as the Tallest Man on Earth, was content to be a simple contemporary folkie, strumming and singing all by his lonesome. But having taken that formula as far as he cared to go, he's been consistently upping the production value on his albums, and in terms of his studio treatments, Matsson's fourth full-length, 2015's Dark Bird Is Home, is his most ambitious set to date.

Matsson himself is sounding a bit different with the passage of time; the craggy side of his voice has mostly fallen away, and he's developed a winsome tone that vaguely resembles the young Paul Simon. If Matsson sounds more like Simon than a wannabe Dylan nine years on from the Tallest Man on Earth's debut, he's writing a bit more like him as well, spinning tales of footloose lovers and romances walking the tightrope between joy and heartbreak.
