Shallow Grave is the debut album of the Swedish folk artist The Tallest Man on Earth. It borrows heavily from American folk music, and includes many references to the lyrics of such music as well as antiquated terminology of the American lexicon, albeit seen through the lens of a Northern European. "The Gardener" is the first single.
