Every now and then you listen to a concert recording, and you’re just floored. Sure, I already knew that Kristian Mattson – the man who goes by the stage moniker The Tallest Man On Earth – was quite the songwriter. I also knew that he was quite the musician. But until now, I didn’t know if he was a performer.
After hearing this boot, it’s pretty indisputable. A man and his guitar; a concert at its most minimalist. Yet, despite the lack of electricity or rhythm section, Mattson puts on one of the most energetic shows I’ve heard in a long time.
Enjoy this one. It’s really quite good.
