It’s around this time every winter that we start to catch up on some of the first-rate music from the previous year that we’ve thus far neglected.
The Tallest Man on Earth (a.k.a. Kristian Matsson) released his Dark Bird Is Home LP in May last year. “Darkness of the Dream” is one of its livelier tunes.
We get two sides of Matsson here: the sullen lad who wanders through wastelands with his dog, and the light-on-his-feet interpretive dancer. We would not have guessed that second one was coming.
