The first thing you notice about Brooklyn folkie Langhorne Slim is his mercurial voice, which crackles with vulnerability — but hardens for withering curveballs (”Now I’m dreaming of leaving my demons/And the first one I’m leaving is you”). Remarkably, his ferocious backup group, the War Eagles, keeps pace with the sudden shifts of mood, evoking, by turns, the Pogues, Arcade Fire, and a very caffeinated Salvation Army Band. To hear ”She’s Gone,” an exclusive cut from his self-titled second album (out April 29), use the player below.
