The Tallest Man On Earth released one of 2008's most powerful records, one that Pitchfork praised, calling Kristian Matsson "a natural-born folksinger, earnest, clever and comforting." This LP features never-before-released vinyl only bonus track "In The Pockets." This six-song EP is as simple as can be - one man with an acoustic guitar, strumming and finger-picking in the rural blues style while he sings with a strong, slightly rough-edged voice, all recorded on what sounds like a slightly wobbly tape machine. While the tone suggests an artist channeling someone from Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music, there's a cinematic richness to the lyrics which is thoroughly contemporary and engaging.
