Between The Wild Hunt and the recently released Sometimes the Blues is Just a Passing Bird EP, it’s been a banner year for The Tallest Man On Earth. I was a very happy boy today when I got the email saying there was a new video for “Love Is All”. The Wild Hunt is a great album, easily one of my favorites of the year, and this song in particular is just a flat out astounding 4 minutes of voice and guitar. I’ve listened to it probably upwards of 50 times and still, under the right circumstances, get chills from the way Kristian Matsson’s voice just soars on the second and third choruses. The video features vintage Super 8 footage compiled by director Johan Stolpe – certainly a fittingly nostalgic visual accompaniment to a song whose simple arrangement conjures such vivid emotion.
