Cat Stevens once said, “I let my music take me where my heart wants to go”—an idea that inspired Langhorne Slim (real name Sean Scolnick), and lies at the center of his new album, Lost At Last Vol. 1. Following your muse, taking the path less traveled—whatever trite way you want to put it, it’s easier said than done. “Attaching one’s identity to the artificial and superficial as opposed to living in amazement, wonder and following our soul’s actual calling is a great human tragedy as I see it,” he explains in the album notes. “We look to our phones, drugs, sex, whatever to find ourselves when it’s already right here”—the importance of connecting, feeling, stripping things down until we get reacquainted with our true selves serving as his mission statement.
