If Bob Dylan's Tempest didn't click with you this year‚ but rather left you pining for something more akin to his work as a younger man‚ then I assure you this Swedish singer-songwriter will have you melting five seconds in. Kristian Matsson seems to have found the hidden secret of simplicity‚ and is able to craft simple folk that transcends both time and pretentious preconceptions. "1904" falls an extremely close second to being the most amazing track on There's No Leaving Now‚ but "To Just Grow Away" is the one you'll be playing the most on your back porch in 40 years.
