Slow Learner is the band name taken by Brooklyn multi-instrumentalist Michael Napolitano, who "wrote, performed, recorded and produced" his debut full-length, In Their Time They Are Magnificent.
Amongst his influences, Mr. Napolitano lists both Bob Dylan and Black Sabbath; Neil Young and Elliott Smith. He also has a rather unique voice that - nevertheless - somehow reminds me of another, better-known vocalist (that I can't quite put my finger on; maybe you can).
The songs below are the first two on the album, and I would have to rate them as my favorites. I would also recommend "The Better the Lonely," which can be sampled at Slow Learner's MySpace page [here].
