New Music Monday: The Tallest Man on Earth
Believe it or not, the Tallest Man on Earth’s newest album, “There’s no leaving now”, is getting more play on my little MacBook Pro than the Gaslight Anthem’s latest. How our tastes change. Sometimes you gotta make room for the newbies.
I heard this song the other evening and the solemn piano in the background mixed with the raspy male vocals instantly caught my ear and my heart.
I like how classic singer/songwriter his music is. It’s just Kristian Matsson’s voice and his guitar, or piano in this case. He is clearly VERY talented and makes unique, modern music in a classic style, I love it.
The inevitable stress before moving across the county is starting to pile up and is catching me off guard at inappropriate times, but I’m realizing the best way to deal with it is just accept it and enjoy the good moments more.
Piano music helps! That and being home in this beautiful weather. I drove up the coast yesterday afternoon to visit with some friends and family and relax a little.
Between good friends, jumping off the Long Cove Quarry cliffs, a steak dinner complete with a nice bottle of red wine shared with my parents, runs by Penobscot Bay and writing/working in the sun room listening to the recorded music off our Yamaha Clavinova (much to my dad’s dismay, I never really learned how to play the piano as well as I should have and just listen to the pre-recorded classics instead) I’m feeling very much so relaxed.
