Langhorne Slim & The Law at Mercy Lounge

Folk-rock four piece Langhorne Slim & The Law is currently on a nationwide tour–which has included stops at the Newport Folk Festival, CBS This Morning, and the Conan O’Brien show, no big deal–to support the release of their sophomore album, “The Spirit Moves,” an effervescent collection of his now-signature, cinematic, joyful noise, rooted in folk, soul, and blues.  Out on Dualtone Records on August 7th, 2015, the album marks his second with rock-solid band The Law, and the highly anticipated follow-up to 2012’s critically acclaimed The Way We Move.  Nashville was lucky enough to have the band for two (that’s right, two!) evenings at The Mercy Lounge recently, and we were there to experience the excitement:
