He's pocketed his home town as his namesake, most likely so the world knows exactly where he's coming from. Langhorne; a tiny speck on the Pennsylvania map just north of Philadelphia. A town that's just like any other small town, save the fact that Langhorne Slim
is a product of it's past. And what a product he is. A wily-eyed, 29 year old country folkie who's as free spirited (no, more!) as any musician who's previously stopped by the crazy, cozy confines of the Guest Apartment.
In our latest session, Mr. Slim (real name Sean Scolnick
) leads an impressive group of malicious, melody makers (Malachi DeLorenzo
on drums, David Moore
on the Banjo, and Jeff Ratner
on the stand-up bass) in a wicked set of songs from their recently released third album, Be Set Free
). Shaking the crusty old floor boards, climbing the apartment walls, and pouncing on the forgiving furniture...this here performance is inspired and bold; a hell-bent hootenanny that left us scratching our fat, befuddled heads as to where exactly the refreshing folks we just hosted hail from.
A "Land of Dreams", it seems. A place where that which gets you down doesn't get you down for too long. A place where satisfied break-up tunes like "I Love You, But Goodbye" (imagine "Don't Think Twice, It's All right", in a way) helps to tame the troubled mind. A place where a giddy, call and response romp - in this case "Cinderella" - provides an optimistic healing point. That place is Langhorne PA...or at least the places of the mind one of it's most genuine, former residents whisks his listener to. - David Pitz
