LANGHORNE SLIM —LOST AT LAST VOL.1 (Dualtone Records)

 

Langhorne Slim is one of those artists who, live, is a captivating performer. To capture this on disc is a difficult task, and though on first listen I felt this was potently true, my stance has since softened. He is good on disc too! Whether as good as live, I would need to deliberate more on…
