The Tallest Man on Earth – The Wild Hunt

Ok, say it and let's just get it over. He sounds like a young Dylan. Or like he's trying really hard to sound like one.

Yes, he kinda sounds like a young Bob Dylan, but he's kind of passionate in a way that Dylan never was.

Plus, I like it when my girl says, "Who is this?" and I can say with a straight face: it's The Tallest Man on Earth.

Edit: I just wanted to add one more song… this one is pretty amazing too.

I had all the means, of bringing you fuckers down. I can't make myself to destroy upon command.

This album is about to actually be released for the first time. I like a lot of the songs, but I love this song. Buy it when it comes out. They used to sell it as a blank CD-R because Danger Mouse licensing didn't get their price (until Mark shot himself… I bet this will be great for his career).

This one fucking song haunts me so much. It's not even Sparklehorse play, it's The Flaming Lips.

The album's story:

Mark's Story

Note that he killed himself after receiving an undisclosed text message.  Damn am I curious what was in that text message.

This badass song, revenge:

Evidence That Vampire Weekend Are Not Actual Demons

Consider the song, Oxford Comma. I don't care if they use outdated African pop as their template, they're cool.

First verse, "Know your boyfriend, unlike other guys."

2nd, "Know your butler, unlike other guys"

and "I met the highest lama, his accent sounded fine to me."

These guys are okay.  They're erudite and all, but I've met worse demons.

Please Have Yourself a Tiny Party to this Song for Me
