The Tallest Man On Earth – Graceland (Paul Simon Cover)

By Will Oliver, May 26th 2010 — with 2 comments Covers MP3

Kristian Matsson, who you probably know as The Tallest Man On Earth is currently one of my favorite singer/songwriters. His music is bare bones folk rock, yet it’s powerful enough to give you goosebumps. This is even true when he covers classic Paul Simon’s songs like “Graceland”.

He strips the song to its purest form and the result is simply…stunning. It would be an understatement to call his voice powerful and moving. The Tallest Man On Earth really knows how to utilize those pipes that he was graced with.

This cover is one of the best that you will hear in general. It was included on his 7″ single release of “King Of Spain” as a b-side. Unfortunatly for us americans, it was sold during his recent Europle Tour only. Lame.

Anyway, grab it below:

    This is pretty great. But I still have a soft spot for the Casiotone for the Painfully Alone version, with it’s military drums and whatnot.
