As the phenomena of instant connection and the need for constant self-improvement further implant their tendrils into our culture, the ability to truly connect with each other and ourselves has begun to fade. As we all reach for our smartphones to gaze upon the manufactured perfection of the lives of those we admire, we lose sight of what makes our own lives important.
Nashville's Langhorne Slim interlaces this theme throughout his new album. 'Everyone's searchin' for something better around every corner, but it's already right here,' Langhorne says. 'We're all born whole -- through livin' we fall apart...'
The songs on Langhorne Slim's newest album, Lost At Last Vol. 1, out November 10, 2017, challenge the idea of social rigidity: the attitude that there's a 'correct' way for us to live and a side we should be on. He urges the world to see through the idea that by following that path and focusing only on fitting the mold, one will have lived a good life. He re-interprets the sound of the free-spirited yet vulnerable everyman heard on 2015's The Spirit Moves and brings forth anew the call for us to abandon 'the fold' and re-connect with ourselves and each other.
