2008's Shallow Grave was one of my favorite albums of the year. It was simplistic folk, just a man from Norway and his guitar. The Tallest Man On Earth was able to conjure an early Dylan sound while adding his own unique traits to his music. I had no idea he was planning on releasing a followup album this year until I saw his new song "King of Spain" splash onto the interwebs. "King of Spain" has all the ambiance of he previous work, that simplistic acoustic sound, yet he seems to have focused and fine-tuned his writing which has resulted in this beautiful song that makes me all the more excited for The Wild Hunt when it comes out in April.
