The Tallest Man On Earth

Newport Folk Festival: Day 3

by Sarah Wardrop

Sometimes it felt like we were paying as much attention to the weather radar as the music, but in the end, there was sun.

Day 3 at Newport had quite a finale: the skies cleared up, and a mutual admiration society of Dawes, Jonathan Wilson, Tom Morello and Sara Watkins held court on the Fort stage with Jackson Browne as their leader, soaking it all up. "Lawyers, Guns and Money" with a Tom Morello solo... Maybe the first time an electric guitar has been played with teeth at Newport? Probably a tie with "These Days" for my highlight of Jackson's set.

The Tallest Man On Earth returned to Studio A upon the release of There's No Leaving Now. There's a warmth and sweetness in the production that brings a new feel to his music. TTMOE has made a pretty special new record and hearing these songs live was pretty exciting. We talked about the making of the album, how his approach has changed and his guitar style. Make sure you pay extra attention to "1904." Beautiful stuff.

Kristian Matsson-a.k.a. The Tallest Man On Earth-released a full-length album earlier this year, but after a few months on tour he took a short break and recorded a new EP, 'Sometimes The Blues Is Just A Passing Bird.' He also stopped by Studio A for a conversation and performance with FUV's Alisa Ali. [9/28/10]
