Langhorne Slim

Like Josh Ritter or the Avett Brothers, Langhorne Slim is a throwback artist who sounds perfectly comfortable in the new alt-folk millennium. Mr. Slim, who travels with an upright-bass-and-drums duo dubbed the War Eagles, purveys an exuberant conflation of backporch folk, hill-country blues and ramshackle indie rock. The trio is on track for a breakout LP in 2007, so make like Jim Ryun and get on over to the Replay Lounge before you have to shell out more than two bucks to catch ’em.
