A longtime darling of the singer-songwriter world, Langhorne Slim has released five full-length records since 2004. His fifth LP and his second with backing group The Law, The Spirit Moves is due out August 7 on Dualtone Records. Billed as a bold, risky tribute to both life and vulnerability, the record finds Slim letting his freak flag fly high.

In anticipation of that release, The A.V. Club has the premiere of the first single off Spirit. “Strangers” is full of sun and wonder, perfect as we tumble slowly toward Memorial Day weekend.
