Today we have a lengthy conversation with The Tallest Man on Earth, the stage name for Swedish artist Kristian Matsson, as our Sense of Place visit to Stockholm continues. Matsson started making folk-inspired music on his own in 2006, recording by himself and giving charismatic one-man performances. He added instruments and other players for the first time on his new album, Dark Bird Is Home, expanding the sonic possibilities.

Originally published on Mon July 27, 2015 4:13 pm

Tall Tales and the Silver Lining is an LA band centered on the songwriting and vision of Trevor Beld Jimenez. The band achieves a barefoot, breezy looseness with their music, and it makes sense that Jimenez has a love for the LA music scene of the 1970s. This comes through on Tightropes, the album released earlier this year, especially with Jimenez's clear, wandering voice.

Although it sure sounds it, nothing the New Orleans roots band The Deslondes does is easy. It's not easy to seamlessly play such a variety of music, from country to R&B and everything in between — and it's certainly not easy to have five singers and writers in one band and to operate as a collective.

The first is on the LA punk scene and came out to unanimous praise in 1979. She used extreme filmmaking methods, got inside the nascent scene with her camera and at times seemingly dove off the stage in small venues.
