Feeling every bit like a continuation of the sessions that produced his excellent second LP The Wild Hunt, this short, five-track EP of skeletal, image-rich ballads manages to sustain that album's high quality through most of its duration before finally succumbing to the feel of an outtakes collection on its final two songs.
As always with The Tallest Man On Earth, the similarity in vibe and vocal-phrasing to early 60s acoustic Dylan is striking, but of particular note here is the track The Dreamer, which finds The Tallest Man switching to electric guitar for the first time to wondrous effect.
Over the last few years, this young Swede has been nothing but pure gold.
Status: Solid Recommend.
Cherry Picker's Best Bets: Little River, The Dreamer.
