Editors’ Notes With his pleasantly nasal voice, intimate arrangements, and rambling-yarn lyrics, Kristian Matsson—the Swedish singer/songwriter known as The Tallest Man on Earth—has styled himself as a modern-day troubadour who chronicles the world in song. Though his sensibility has remained steady, Matsson's musical vernacular has grown since he emerged in the mid-'00s as a gritty strummer with a scratchy warble. You can draw a direct line from Bob Dylan to early six-string gems like “This Wind,” while the airy balladry of “Sagres” (off 2015's Dark Bird Is Home) draws on the lush textures of chamber pop.
