The Tallest Man On Earth - Sometimes The Blues Is Just A Passing Bird

The Tallest Man On Earth, aka Swedish singer-songwriter Kristian Matsson, is quickly following his The Wild Hunt full-length with the wordier five-song Sometimes The Blues Is Just A Passing Bird. The guy gets compared to Dylan a lot, but the EP’s pretty, quiet third song “Like The Wheel” has something in its vocal line that reminds me of Magnetic Fields’ “Papa Was A Rodeo.” It’s a small, subtle thing — the drag of word or two at the end of certain lines — but it’s there and I can’t stop hearing it. Which is not a bad thing.
