Swedish artist The Tallest Man on Earth, whose real name is Kristian Matsson, is a brilliant songwriter with a grainy, acoustic vibe. Many compare Matsson to an early-Bob Dylan, and, with powerful imagery and an emotive, raspy voice, I can see where they’re coming from.

The track below, “The Gardener”, has really caught me off guard and rendered me a slave to its beautiful story, in a put-on-repeat-for-30-minutes kind of way.
