The new Langhorne Slim record, The Way We Move, is very fine indeed. In certain ways, it feels like the coagulation of all his energy, the first time his boisterous Preacher/Loverman live act has been fully captured on record. Check out the smile-making video above of the title track, in which Slim and his band the Law perform in a boxing ring. But there's no fighting, it's all loving.
The long-awaited The Way We Move comes out on Ramseur Records on June 5. If you've ever seen Langhorne's remarkable live show, you're already excited. His next Portland area shows will be at this year's Pickathon, August 3-5.
