    Though his performance in our Guest Apartment was fever pitched, Langhorne Slim certainly knows how to dial it back, such as the case with the title track from his recently released album, Be Set Free. Taking his foot off the pedal, Slim glides through the kind of tune that demands an excavation of the heart and soul. Without it, all those nuances - the drums that hit just behind the beat, the ardent, vocal cadence, the desperate rasp in Slim's voice - wouldn't be possible.

    Pairing a video to the song, Slim finds the perfect little story to add an extra layer of dimension. To lines such as, "When you're tired and you're torn/And humankind seems filled with misery/Then you can, yes you can/You can be set free", a charming, animated character trudges through the daily grind, making a life amongst a bleak and monotonous backdrop. When enough is enough...when he tragically hits the brink of his existence...well, it's safe to say Slim's song is for him. - David Pitz
