With his signature raspy wail and fusion of gospel, punk and folk styles, Langhorne Slim returns with the horn-laced "Life's a Bell" from the forthcoming album "The Spirit Moves."
The year 2012 was a memorable one for the live performance studios of 88.1 KDHX. We hosted over 170 national and local bands, all of whom gave us their very best.
At the end of the third night of Twangfest, I was surprised the building was still in one piece. Luckily for the Duck Room, the structure is made from the same hard substances that has kept so many St. Louis buildings standing for so many years -- brick, old stone and concrete.
The energy in the Duck Room Friday night was barely containable. The room nearly exploded due to some crowd surfing, off-stage singing, a double encore, and other shenanigans.
A mellow soul decorated by life on the road, Langhorne Slim can be found somewhere between weathered folk vinyls and a kickin' rock show, while flirting with upbeat pop rhythms.
