Tallest Man Joins Dead Oceans, Drops Single

Posted by Andrew R Tonry on Mon, Jan 25, 2010 at 2:03 PM


My God, when the Tallest Man On Earth came and played Rontoms, those were just phenomenal. The kind of thing where he holds a note or nails a phrase and it makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up.

Thankfully, the Swede is getting back at it. He's signed with Dead Oceans (home to our own beloved Nurses), who will release his second album, The Wild Hunt, on April 13th. A US tour will surely follow.

But that feels like a long time to wait. Fortunately there's a single to be had, and you can download it at the Dead Oceans site. How catchy is it? Well, the Tallest Man performed it back at Ron Toms about a year ago, but I remember the fucker clearly. Have a listen:

"King of Spain":
