Kristian Matsson, provenance Sweden, is The Tallest Man On Earth. Being that his debut, 2008’s Shallow Grave, was one of the strongest folk records of that year, I have been anxiously awaiting its follow-up. That wait appears to be over as Matsson’s new label, Dead Oceans, has announced The Wild Hunt will be released on April 13th (April 12th in the UK).
