Tallest Man On Earth
THE TALLEST MAN ON EARTH - TOO LATE FOR EDELWEISS
The Tallest Man On Earth – the project of Swedish musician Kristian Matsson – announces the album Too Late For Edelweiss as a physical release (vinyl & cd). On the album, Matsson weaves together a sparse collection of home recordings made in Sweden and North Carolina - all covers.
As much as Too Late for Edelweiss feels like a scrapbook, an intimate memento with the ghosts of The Tallest Man’s earlier, sparser sound hovering at the edges, it’s also just the artifact of a moment - a flash of joy, of feeling recharged, of feeling good. These are the songs that happened to be in Matsson’s head at the time he sat down to record. It came together so simply and easily – and in that way, it’s the purest distillation of making music - and being a fan of it, charting the connective tissue of a songwriter’s life.
