The Way We Move: Langhorne Slim Ramseur Records 

Slim returns with an album more focused on the theme of redemption through maturation.

When folk singer Langhorne Slim’s new album The Way We Move, starts spinning—figuratively, for you digitally-minded folks—there isn’t much you can do to keep from reflecting on your day, your week or let’s face it… even your entire life.

On The Way We Move, Slim returns with an album more focused on the theme of redemption through maturation than previous efforts that seemed to deal with fighting against that process. The new record speaks to being comfortable and ready for the next stage of life while remembering the path you traveled to get there.

The evidence of this is found not just by listening to songs like the letting-go-of-love track “Salvation” or the learning-to-be-still track “Wild Soul,” but is also found by listening to the emotion in Slim’s voice as he recounts those events from a first-person perspective.

The blend of Americana, bluegrass and folk music often relies on whimsical banjo playing and fanciful piano to beckon the listener to come sit a spell. It’s a formula Slim hasn’t really deviated from since he started releasing albums in 1999 and one that has garnered him recognition at music festivals across the country.

The Way We Move is a beautiful illustration of how people choose to navigate life and play the hand they are dealt. The album preaches that while the past doesn’t have to dictate the future, you can’t forge a new existence if you forget the lessons you’ve learned.
