Gavin Breeden, friend of The Hurst Review, has added his voice to the chorus of praise for The Tallest Man on Earth and his tremendous full-length debut, Shallow Grave. The album is only available on American soil via iTunes download, so many critics have not yet discovered it, but those who have are uniform in their admiration and affection for The Tallest Man’s hypnotic, bizarre and beautiful folk songs.
Breeden also spots a video for a fine non-album track, which Tallest Man fans will be eager to enjoy.
And though The Hurst Review’s coverage of the album has tapered off, our enthusiasm for it has not. It’s as spellbinding today as it was a few months ago, and it’s a sure thing for this year’s top ten list.
