Song of the Day: Tallest Man on Earth – King of Spain

‘King of Spain” by The Tallest Man on Earth

King of Spain mp3 (right click and hit save as to download)

Ya he does sound a little like Dylan, and no he’s not actually very tall. But the Swedish folk singer Kristian Matsson is about as good as it gets in the world of solo acoustic bros. Seems like everyone with an acoustic guitar and a ‘scratchy’ voice gets pigeon holed as being ‘Dylanesque’. Seems like there is an equally big tendency for the music reviewing world to get really annoyed anytime the term ‘Dylanesque’ is used. Haven’t really figured out how I feel about either one of these tendencies. Just felt that they needed to be mentioned.

BTW – King or Spain is a great song off the soon to be released album, “The Wild Hunt”.
