Langhorne Slim shared Strawberry Mansion this past week. Quarantine inspired writing and reflection for Langhorne Slim frontman Sean Scolnick, writing the album in the months of March, April, and May in 2020. A liberating addition to the Americana unit’s sound, Strawberry Mansion gives us a sampling of the band’s best and beloved with poetic and folksy musings on isolation, anxiety, addiction, and taking life slow. In total, the record comes in at 19 different songs and 3 additional bonus tracks. The band recorded in Nashville at Daylight Sound along with Paul Defigilia (Avett Brothers) and Matt Davidson (Twain).
About the records title, the band explains, “Strawberry Mansion is the neighborhood in Philly that my grandfathers Jack + Sid grew up in. It’s become a place of myths for me. A place that’s dirty but sweet, tough but full of love.” Indulging in the sort of American mythic that’s given Americana its soul, Strawberry Mansion is a sort of lighthouse amidst a storm.
