    That freewheelin' singer-songwriter Kristian Matsson (known as The Tallest Man On Earth) hasn't lost any of his panache. The man is magical with an acoustic guitar. There's No Leaving Now, the next in his excellent discography, isn't due until 6/12, but the first single "1904" is being offered as a free download. The song is mostly standard TMOE fare-- with some electric guitar accents in the background changing the timbre a bit-- so rest assured it's got the same ol' heart. You don't have to embark on a wild hunt to grab it, either. Jump ahead.

    Matsson told Rolling Stone about recording the new album at the home he shares with his wife and fellow musician Amanda Bergman:

    "This time I'm much luckier," he says. "I live in a beautiful place and I actually have a little studio." Time also afforded him the luxury of recording in a more traditional manner: while the singer had dismissed multi-track recording in the past, this time around he tinkered with technology. "I wanted to build something that didn't sound like a rock band, but wasn't super minimalistic," Matsson says. "I wanted a sound that had that brittle [quality], that feeling that it might just fall apart."
