Langhorne Slim Contest

"I’m not sure that there’s any other kind, but the songs I write are love songs. Some are literal, about specific events, people and relationships in my life; a form of therapy, self-help for the flowers and the shit along the road of life. Others come from a place far more mysterious. Either way, I’m in it to capture the feeling, the truth of an emotion, changing only names and events to protect the innocent.

This collection of songs represents our most comfortable, cohesive and soul-shaking music to date. It has been a great pleasure for me working with Sam, Malachi and Paul on this. And after all the good, bad and not so pretty all I can say is—please enjoy.

Love and Peace, Langhorne"

If you've been enjoying Langhorne Slim's self-titled album, he's practically giving up his entire summer to bring it to you live. And if you've really been enjoying his album, here's a chance for you to win a vinyl copy of his new 7" single for Rebel Side of Heaven (b/w Sometimes), a sticker, and a poster. All you need to do is leave a comment (or e-mail me) with your name and e-mail address, let me know if you want to be added to the Langhorne Slim e-mailing list, and you'll be in the running (US residents only, sorry). The contest will run through Saturday and I'll choose a winner Saturday eveningish and send Ed McMahon and the Prize Patrol to their door (or maybe just e-mail them).

Hey Sean,
You're probably aware, but that Sam that Langhorne mentions is my brother, Sam Kassirer, Josh Ritter's keyboard player!! Also, I saw you're going to be at Green River. I'll be there as well on Saturday. I'd love to finally meet you in person.
Talk later,
