Langhorne Slim “Restless”

Over the past few months I have heard the name Langhorne Slim more than any other.  The name really grabs your attention at first. It makes you want to find out what the deal with this guy is, right? Then you hear Langhorne Slim and the War Eagles, and it blows your mind. Slim is almost like a mixture of Ryan Adams during the Whiskeytown era with a dab or Elvis Perkins in Deerland and a sprinkle of Ryan Adams’ ‘Gold’.  I have a few favorite tracks off of Langhorne’s album, especially the infectious ‘Diamonds and Gold’, but recently I have a new favorite growing on me, ‘Restless’. If you missed their performance on Letterman, I suggest you go and check it out. Its really something brilliant. It gives you a whole new appreciation to the song.

Langhorne Slim is on an extensive tour including two stops in New York City. This Friday 10/10 at the Bowery at Saturday 10/11 at The Williamsburg Music Hall. If you’re in the area, I urge you to check out Langhorne in concert. It will blow your mind.

  1. Langhorne is an old Sidewalk Antifolker. Still, I never have been able to get any music promos into my shows. Great stuff. How’d you find him?

  2. Really? I didn’t know he was an old Sidewalk Antifolker, but the name DID seem really familar to me. That must hve been why!

    I’ll give you the contact info for promo 🙂
