Tallest Man on Earth – Review

If you haven’t heard of The Tallest Man on Earth yet, he’s great. His voice is unique and was a bit grating to me at first, but after listening to him for a few weeks, it’s really grown on me. He uses a lot of abstract lyrics and unique tunings in his songs. He’s definitely worth checking out if you like folk music at all, or if you’re looking for something a little unique. I got tickets to the Tallest Man on Earth in a few weeks at the Independent Theater in San Francisco, and I’ll be sure to let all of you know about how the show goes.

Newish Band Review of the Day: Blitzen Trapper

Oh yes, I can’t get enough of this American Folk revival.  For those of you who like this sound, or want to give it a try, I highly recommend the band Blitzen Trapper. A lot of the folky stuff can put one to sleep, but this band has a bit of an upbeat to their music, and incorporates some interesting melodies and instruments. Here’s some random songs I got from Grooveshark.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
