langhorne slim Lost At Last Vol. 1 (180g vinyl LP, £15.75)
Langhorne Slim is no stranger to the world of popular culture and commercial success. Lost At Last Vol. 1 is his seventh full-length album; throughout his career he has been defined by reflective songwriting and passionate delivery. His last album cycle alone garnered him a second appearance on Conan O'Brien’s late-night show, as well as a feature on CBS Saturday Morning, the highest charting debut of his career and music placements in Coca Cola and Autotrader commercials. But Langhorne Slim’s album Lost At Last Vol. 1 is a record that he wanted to do differently from the start. The songs challenge the idea of social rigidity: the attitude that there’s a “correct” way for us to live and a side we should be on. He urges the world to see through the idea that by following that path and focusing only on fitting the mould, one will have lived a good life. He re-interprets the sound of the free-spirited yet vulnerable everyman heard on 2015’s The Spirit Moves and brings forth anew the call for us to abandon “the fold” and reconnect with ourselves and each other. Tracks: Life Is Confusing / Old Things / House Of My Soul (You Light The Rooms)/ Ocean City (for May, Jack And Brother Jon) / Private Property / Money Road Shuffle / Never Break / Bluebird / Alligator Girl / Feelin’ Funny (for Junior Kimbrough And Ted Hawkins) / Zombie / Lost This Time / Better Man.
