Format: Audio CD
Those that dismiss The Tallest Man On Earth's Kristian Matsson as a Bob Dylan copyist do so as their peril. Dylan doesn't own the nasal rasp, and though in comparison Matsson does sound very familiar, so does he have an incredibly strong musical voice of his own.

Following his bewitching and recently re-released debut LP Shallow Grave as well as this year's toe-tapping The Wild Hunt, Sometimes The Blues Is Just A Passing Bird is way more than just an off-cut or contractual filler. It's an identifiable collection, albeit a small one, of poignant and beautiful acoustic folk - one that remains warm and irrepressible, but, as the EP's title suggests, Matsson seems to have a heavy heart as 2010 starts to draw to a close.

The careful warmth of the opener "Little River" is deceptive, despite latterly leading into masterful depth. On top of his skilful guitar work, Mattson's vocal variety is compelling, ranging from the nasal to the bubblingly up-tempo as required by his cadences. And it's a timeless, soothing and effortless start, as well as one without a trace of pretension.

Uncharacteristically, Matsson plugs in for the lightly reverbed "The Dreamer", a track which initially seems made for melancholic moments in teen drama, but whose depths ultimately prove that notion a disservice. Matsson is once again on mesmeric form, deconstructing his chord progressions at its end to usher in a powerful reprise whilst grabbing the track by its neck for a falteringly emotional and heartfelt vocal turn that provides the EP with its name.

Just like debut ep Sometimes the Blues Is Just a Passing Bird is short and sweet. Five tracks and a playing time well below twenty minutes. But it enjoyable all the way through. And the five tracks ranks among the tallest man's best.

This is my favourite album by TTMOE. Songwriting doesn't get more raw and emotional than it does here, in a good way. His other albums are strong, but this one is solid.
Song that brought me to listen to him: Dreamer.
