The Tallest Man On Earth – “Like The Wheel”

Kristian Matsson a.k.a. TTMOE surprised us with the release of a new EP, Sometimes The Blues Is Just A Passing Bird, yesterday via iTunes.  “Like The Wheel” is yet another heart-melting, finger-picked gem from the ever-profilic and ever-consistent Matsson.  This time, his voice and guitar are underpinned by some gentle keyboards.  It’s a small, but very noticeable touch considering Matsson is never accompanied by anything other than a guitar or banjo.  Also, as Stereogum’s Brandon Stosuy astutely pointed out, “Like The Wheel” bears a passing melodic resemblance to The Magnetic Fields’ “Papa Was A Rodeo”.

Sometimes The Blues Is Just A Passing Bird is out 11/9 via Dead Oceans.  It’s also available now on iTunes.
