Sweden's Kristian Matsson-- moniker the Tallest Man on Earth-- has been bringing us his fingerpicked guitars, inscrutable lyrics and neo-Dylan stylings for around four years now, his most recent physical release being this year's The Wild Hunt LP. Matsson and label Dead Oceans surprised us by dropping a new Tallest Man EP today. Titled Sometimes the Blues Is Just a Passing Bird, the five-song release can be found on iTunes this very moment, and will be seeing more tangible release come Nov. 9. Check out the third track from Passing Bird, the pastoral "Like the Wheel," right now. It's even got some wisps of piano(!) in there. The new EP's track list is below. [24Bit]
