Drinking my coffee this morning, I was in the mood for music perfect for a crisp early morning. Pretty much on autopilot I clicked “Bruised Orange” from The Tallest Man on Earth’s album There’s No Leaving Now. About three minutes into the song as Matsson sings “but sometimes it’s roses dying too young” with beautiful desperation, I realized we hadn’t done his new album justice yet on the blog. Usually I’d go rambling on about how perfect the album is and so unique; however, while his voice is very unique, I wouldn’t say the album is groundbreaking in any way — but I’m not putting the album down I promise! Only that There’s No Leaving Now is an album any folk lover would enjoy and some tracks, such as “Wind and Walls” could easily be played on the radio and enjoyed by folks who are unaware that they are folk music fans. While not an essential for a music library, you’ll enjoy having his new album come up on shuffle. Check out my favorite off the album below.
