Langhorne Slim's new album and tour through B'ham.

I have heard miscellaneous buzz around Langhorne Slim in the past few months. After seeing Bob Crawford of the Avett Brothers wearing their shirt, I figured, why not? So I purchased the new Langhorne Slim yesterday, and must say I am most impressed. Similarities of Dylan, Avett, Magic Numbers, and Black Crowes come to mind. Truly, the whole album is quite solid from beginning to end. Definitely, has a hint of alt-country twinged in it. Accordions, twangy guitar riffs, and violin are just a few accompaniments that bolster Langhorne's voice.
