Singer and songwriter Langhorne Slim, whose real name is Sean Scolnick, offers a sardonic, modern take on traditional folk, country, and blues.

Recently, Langhorne Slim and his band The Law, released their new album The Spirit Moves. Sonically, the album features a banjo-driven rock, folk and pop sound that demonstrates an increased sense of artistry and depth. Thematically, the album’s content is celebratory, but also confessional, centering on Scolnick’s transition to a completely sober lifestyle.

During a recent visit to Studio A, Langhorne Slim & The Law played some of their new material and I talked with Sean about the album. Hear that performance and conversation in this episode of FUV Live.
