One of our most anticipated releases of 2012 is The Tallest Man On Earth’s There’s No Leaving Now – we’ve played out Swedish folk-rock maestro Kristian Matsson’s The Wild Hunt, and we’re always yearning for more of his undeniably singular voice and songwriting. Luckily he just dropped single number one, “1904,” and it’s a fantastic, full-sounding song, with hypnotic layers of pretty, bright guitar winding like ivy around Matsson’s abstract lyrics and spine-tingling vocals. At times it can sound like a lost Neutral Milk Hotel b-side; at times like classic Americana. In short – we’re loving it. There’s No Leaving Now drops June 12.
