CURRENT: The Tallest Man On Earth – “Dark Bird Is Home”

On “Dark Bird Is Home,” the title-track off of The Tallest Man On Earth’s new album (out May 12 on Dead Oceans), Kristian Mattson finds himself trying to be there for the people he cares for, all while falling apart himself. “Suddenly, the day gets you down / but this is not the end,” he sings on the chorus. As up as things appear to be, things quickly head south. “I thought this would last for a million years / but now I need to go,” he realizes. He then lets out one final gasp, reverting to a primal response: “Oh, fuck.”
