The Tallest Man On Earth Drops New Short Film

    There's something about the Swedish language that I find mesmerizing. There's a cadence and an almost physical texture to the words that I could listen to all day (and may partially explain why one of my favorite filmmakers is Ingmar Bergman). I could listen to Swedish people talk even if I didn't know what they were saying. And Swedish folk star, The Tallest Man On Earth (nee Kristian Matsson), indulges that weird joy in a short film about last year's Dark Bird Is Home.

    Matsson shared the short film as well a slew of upcoming world tour dates today, and if you've ever found yourself lost in the complex guitar harmonies and layers of The Tallest Man On Earth's work, you should get excited. But the short film itself is also worth your time (and not just to hear Matsson speaking his native tongue). It is full of gorgeous shots of his native Sweden which makes me want to take a vacation there ASAP.
