The Tallest Man on Earth


Can't lie I found this while scowering the best of lists of '08 (can't lie a fairly shit year for music minus a few great gems, heres to 09!). I wish I caught it earlier, a nice humble folk album with catchy tunes and nice everyday man lyrics. What Ryan Adams and Connor Oberst wish they were and try so very very hard to be, but dont let that turn you off, the shits official. Truely in the vein of the great Bob Dylan and Nick Drake. I know everyone says that about everyone but this record just has a certain authenticity, trust me... it just feels... right. Its gonna be so nice in the park on a sunny day and there is no doubt I'll still be giving it spins for months to come.
