Kristian Matsson and Amanda Hollingby Matsson aka The Tallest Man On Earth and Idiot Wind aka husband and wife are the near perfect pair. Both are indie singer-songwriters from Sweden, one sounds like Bob Dylan when he plays, the other takes her stage moniker from a Bob Dylan song. But they are perhaps at their best when they collaborate in music.
Strand of Oaks has been promoting his latest album, Pope Killdragon, hard this winter, and that’s meant quite a few covers. We last heard from Timothy Showalter a little over a month ago with his fragile version of Phosphorescent’s “Wolves.” He’s kept plenty busy since then, though, and with three new covers released, it seemed about time to catch up.
