My Year In Music -- April

It took me almost a year of listening to cuts like this extraordinary tune from 2008's Shallow Grave album to finally dive wholeheartedly into the music of The Tallest Man on Earth. Could this croaky voiced, Swedish parody of Dylan really be such a consistently great songwriter? If Shallow Grave didn't prove it, then his second full-length, The Wild Hunt, released in April, absolutely does.

Wild Hunt's songs still range from high energy...



...to cooly meditative...


...but are even more inventive (if slightly less edgy):


Not only that! His voice has become infinitely more flexible...


...his finger-picking is just as accomplished...


...and his instrumentation has (okay, just in one song) expanded:


Can you tell I love this entire album?
