Langhorne Slim & The Law’s “The Spirit Moves” Reaches Career Milestone Artistically and Statistically

The Spirit Moves, Langhorne Slim’s most personal and introspective album yet, has resonated deeply with fans, as well as the press. An artistic career milestone for Langhorne Slim, The Spirit Moves explores themes that include transition, growth, new beginnings, and most importantly finding strength in vulnerability.  The album has received coverage via Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone Country, Onion A.V. Club, Acoustic Guitar, Blurt, Relix, Uncut, Southern Living and The Boston Globe.  One week after the album was released, Langhorne Slim & The Law appeared on both CONAN (click HERE) & CBS Saturday Morning (click HERE) and have been packing venues across the country including their first sold out show at The Troubadour Theatre in LA.

A mix of soul-shout revival, Americana introspection and the Fifties-evoking jams . . . The Spirit Moves is an artist looking forward through a fresh set of eyes.”Rolling Stone Country

With his trembling lonesome quiver of a voice, Slim has always possessed the ability to explore the lines separating faith and hope, optimism and cynicism, and emotional carnage.  The Spirit Moves zeroes in on these in bare existential terms. . . .” – Uncut 

“This is the album that you recommend to all segments of your friends without reservation.  One that if you’ve got half a heart, it’s likely to break and pulse and soar.”No Depression

Upon its August 7th release, The Spirit Moves became Langhorne Slim & The Law’s highest charting record to date on Billboard’s Top Current Albums chart, also debuting at #15 on the Independent chart, #8 on the Folk Chart and #3 on the New Artist chart. The album has quickly moved into the Top 25 on the Americana Radio Chart and Top 10 at the FMQB Non-Com chart; and the single “Strangers” is currently Top 30 on the Triple A BDS Chart.
