The Tallest Man on Earth, a.k.a. Swedish singer-songwriter Kristian Matsson, arrived more or less fully formed in 2006 with his self-titled debut EP. Those five songs of evocative guitar-and-pipes trad-folk could have been written at any point in the past century. Since then, Matsson has dropped another EP (2010's Sometimes the Blues Is Just a Passing Bird) and three full-lengths, including this year's great There's No Leaving Now, which takes the 29-year-old's fingerpicked guitar and familiar croaky voice and adds ever-so-gentle drums and electric guitars for extra color. There are reasons to be skeptical of one man's ability to hold an audience's attention, but this Man has long since figured out how to pack some serious punch with his minimal setup. With Strand of Oaks. 18+. (Photo by Julia Mard)
