Langhorne Slim “Zombie” – Listen

Langhorne Slim’s new album “Lost at Last Vol 1” is out November on the Dualtone label and he’s released an EP previewing three tracks from it, one of which you can hear below (and it’s not a Cranberries cover, just to get that disappointment in now).  Paste writes: “The main vein of the song is unrequited love: “She drank red wine in the pouring rain / She read me books about the human brain.” The woman Slim depicts in this song isn’t emotionally available beyond intellect and friendship—true to patriarchal form, Mr. Slim puts the mysterious mistress in the body of a monster. But he also puts himself in one. As Slim sings towards the end of the song, “he wanted her heart” in the same way a zombie wants the brain.”
