I discovered and wrote up The Tallest Man On Earth back in July. I wrote about the song Before The Mountains. Now his debut ep is out on Gravitation and has been picked up for distribution in the US by Parasol (buy it here). The 5 song ep self-titled ep features even less info than his sketchy MySpace page.
What you do get is rustic, rootsy, acoustic, fingerpicked (Piedmont) blues. The song “Walk The Line” has a beautiful repeating guitar riff as well as TTMOE’s best vocal performance to date. Lyrically it’s hard not to think Johnny Cash and the images and conflicting biblical forces present do bring the man in black to mind.
The Tiny have released a new video for the song “Dirty Frames” for the American release of Starring: Someone Like You on Eyeball Records on Jan. 23 and it’s Eraserhead creepy, musically challenging and sumptious where it needs to be. Buy it here now.
