The Tallest Man On Earth, AKA Swedish folkster - Kristian Matsson, just released the second single and title track off of his forthcoming album, Dark Bird Is Home. The lush full-band first single off of his upcoming fourth album, ‘Sagres’, was an interesting change for Matsson, considering his past works are almost exclusively focused on his guitar work. ‘Dark Bird Is Home’ will be a bit more familiar for fans of Matsson’s regular style. It starts off as the lovely, conversational acoustic ballad form that Matsson has perfected, but eventually builds into something more orchestral that better reflects his recent change in direction.

The album is out next month (May 12th), and The Tallest Man On Earth will be touring with a full-band in support of Dark Bird Is Home well into the fall months. Unfortunately, there is no scheduled Canadian dates at the moment, but keep your eyes peeled!

Toronto concert-goers rejoice! Following highly successful launches in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Austin, Chicago and Miami, Jukely Unlimited has decided to head north and make Toronto the first international city to secure the concert subscription service. For just $25/month, Toronto music fans can attend an unlimited number of live shows in their area. Subscribers can even upgrade to $45/month Unlimited Plus subscription that allows users the option to either bring a friend along to shows or use the extra pass for themselves to gain entry into a separate show on the same day.

Jukely Unlimited is all about encouraging people to get out there and discover new artists they normally wouldn't pay to see, and it has been successful in doing just that. 65 percent of subscribers claim to be going to see artists they've never heard of before. That being said, Jukely Unlimited users will see familiar names on the list of shows offered in Toronto. Past artists that have been featured on the service include Montreal funk-duo Chromeo, English singer-songwriter James Blake, and controversial rapper Tyler The Creator.

So, a service that allows you to go to an unlimited amount of shows for only $25 a month — it almost sounds too good to be true. There are some catches, of course. Tickets only become available online three days before the event takes place. This means that subscribers must be ready to jump on available tickets as soon as they show up on the service, and this may be difficult for high-demand shows. Also, subscribers can only be signed up to go to one show at a time. Users can’t sign-up for another show until they’ve actually attended the current gig they’re scheduled to attend. Once subscribers “check-in” at their event, they are once again able to sign up for shows.

Still, $25/month for an unlimited amount of shows is a pretty great bargain for Toronto live music enthusiasts, especially those who are open to discovering new artists. Even better, you can try it free for 7 days!
