- Shallow Grave
- Artist: The Tallest Man on Earth
- Format: LP
- Release Date:12/6/2011
The Tallest Man on Earth released one of 2008's most powerful records, one that Pitchfork praised, calling Kristian Matsson "a natural-born folksinger, earnest, clever, and comforting." Shallow Grave could not have been more simple, just Matsson's commanding vocals with an acoustic guitar or banjo, recorded at his home in Dalarna, Sweden. Although the album was released on the Swedish label Gravitation without the help of widespread distribution, the story of the Tallest Man on Earth spread far and wide through word of mouth.
