New Music From Tallest Man On Earth

Not long removed from his incredible LP The Wild Hunt, Tallest Man on Earth just surprised everyone this morning with news of a new EP for sale on itunes today.  The new EP, Sometimes the Blues is Just a Passing Bird, features 5 brand new songs recorded shortly after the release of this year’s LP.  You can download the EP now until it is released physically on November 9th.  Below you’ll find new ballad “Like The Wheel” to download and stream.  This guy can do nothing wrong in my opinion.

FT5: Albums Of The Year (So Far)

Seems like this time of year everybody makes their own version of the best of (so far) albums list.  You think we’d sit back and let everyone else have all the fun?  Think again.  I’ll get this out of the way now and say that this is MY list.  This is in no way a comprehensive list created by all us ATH staffers.  This is ‘ol RayRay’s list full of what I’ve been spinning this year more than anything else.  Now obviously it’s difficult for a music writer to condense a list down to just five, so some very worthy albums will be left off this list.  Of course we’ll put our heads together and make a huge list at the end of the year… Follow the jump for full list.

New Music From Tallest Man On Earth

The+Tallest+Man+on+Earth+tallest+man+on+earthThis new track from Swedish folk singer, Tallest Man On Earth, has been floating around the internet over the last few days and we just had to get it on our site.  This new jam “King of Spain” will appear on the upcoming album The Wild Hunt, due out April 13th on Dead Oceans.  The track comes off sounding a bit like some old school Tweedy led Uncle Tupelo with vocals more similar to Dylan on helium.  That’s good right?
