Biography

Outside of Philadelphia I was born and raised, and in the playground I spent quite a few of my younger days. At the time I had a preference for brunettes but years pass and we change. When my tendencies turned toward blondes I began to hear the call of the big rotten apple and at eighteen, away I went. Gone were the lonely, sweaty summer nights of PA. The crickets were still cricken’ ... Read more in Amazon's Langhorne Slim Store

Editorial Reviews

2009 release, the third album from the mighty Langhorne Slim. One of the most endearing and standout qualities of Slim's live shows is the sureness that one is always entering a genuine Gospel-like musical experience full of little miracles. Be Set Free has captured this charisma and spirit -the "hold your heart" moments and "raise a drink" dance vibes shine throughout with lush string arrangements and the fine sonic talents of drummer Malachi DeLorenzo and new bassist Jeff Ratner. Langhorne's stronger than ever vocals lead the journey blending his poetry through the beautiful chaos and bearing a wisdom that reflects a broken heart battling the perils of true hope. Be Set Free is also one of Langhorne's most cinematic and cohesive efforts to date. Slim has truly reached a point of light where these songs come from wide-eyed maturity and mastered craft.

Other songs are good but not great - Yer Wrong is a bit monotone as is Say Yes.

I had never heard of this band/person before yet I saw them come up on the MSN Music site when the album came out. Since it was streaming for free there, I gave it a listen and was impressed enough to give it a few more listens and eventually I bought it. I dug around for his older stuff and it didn't seem as consistent as this album. I don't like to put artists in a strict category but I think the "alternative folk rock" description suits them best. I'd peg them as a more-Americana Ryan Adams. Similar to Ryan's albums, which are more of the alternative country genre, there's enough range on the album to make it a "box of chocolates" as described by another reviewer, and it is that variety that makes this appealing. Most songs aren't what one would classify as all-out rockers, but "Say Yes" and "Yer Wrong" are very upbeat. The album seems to have an undercurrent of a relationship break-up ("Leaving My Love", "Be Set Free"), but with a relaxed tone and upbeat melody that seems to imply that this time it's of the author's choosing.

The lyrics are all entertaining, right from the get-go. In the opener, "Back to the Wild", I like how he laments "I've had it better than some and I know I shouldn't complain/though my grandfather told me once that all pain hurts the same". Meanwhile, there's really only one dud on the entire album, "So Glad I'm Coming Home", which luckily appears as the penultimate song. My favorites on the album include "Land of Dreams" and the mid-tempo rocker "Yer Wrong", although I can't decide which I'd pick as the better of the two. If you're looking to play this on the family stereo, just be aware of some mild swearing in "Yer Wrong" and some not-so-mild swearing in "Blown Your Mind". In any case, this was a great discovery for me, not too mellow and better than your average singer-songwriter stuff appearing today.

What I love about listening to Langhorne Slim is you never know what to expect; every track of a new album is like that big box under the Christmas tree with your name on it and all you can think is "Wow, I can't wait to open that up!". Slim offers a musical style all his own; his voice while gruff is full of passion, his lyrics are like listening in on a private phone conversation, you only hear on side but it's all you need, and music itself varies from straight blues to flat out rock, to the acoustic simplicity of a man and his guitar. If you are someone who enjoys the Avett Brothers, Josh Ritter, Blitzen Trapper, Connor Oberst, or anyone from this new folk/rock, bluegrass/grunge genre, you will not be disappointed with Langhorne Slim.

I would place this album top ten all time (for my tastes of course). The others being:

Rocking the Suburbs- Ben Folds
August and Everything After- The Counting Crows
I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning- Bright Eyes

and six others that I can't think of right now.

The music does just that.. it let's you "Be set free" From the title track, to Lord and I love you but goodbye, this album has not one song I would skip. Mr Scholnik is imho a modern day Dylan, just a little more positive, or happy if you will.. I would reccomend this to ANYONE looking for music w/ real passion and meaning.. nothing like seeing Slim live.. the man has restored my faith in music.. and rock n roll.. Lyricist extrodinaire.. if ya like the Avett's, Choco drops, Shakes.. ect.. he's a Ramsuer recording artist for a reason.. Dolph has one hell of an ear for music.. Much better than Rick Rubin in my eyes.

What can I say... this man's lyrics speak to my soul! You can't go wrong if you like fun folk music with incredible lyrics. There is a song for every mood on this album, as well as every single other Langhorne Slim album. I own them all and so should you!

Langhorn balances singer sing writer style with bluegrass and country influences. His attention to the subtleties of these genres is really what makes his stye unique. Langhorn can get a bit monotone at points and brilliant at others - his sound varies from complex to incredibly simple - Land of Dreams is one of those songs that catches you off guard with how it builds into something amazing while Blow Your Mind is a song that is simply Langhorn and a piano and is just as amazing. Other songs are good but not great - Yer Wrong is a bit monotone as is Say Yes. Still there are tracks that will leave you singing along such as Cinderella and So Glad That I'm Coming Home.
