Langhorne Slim mixes folk, blues, and rock into a style vaguely reminiscent of lunatic icon Hasil Adkins. The songwriter, who hails from Brooklyn via Pennsylvania, conjures images of many other neo-folk singers, but there's soul, fire, and warmth in his recordings. Hear Langhorne Slim perform songs from his new album with host David Dye.

Slim's self-titled sophomore disc isn't as raw as When the Sun's Gone Down, but the disc — his first for a big label — still brings out the power and charisma of his live performances.
