The deep baritone of Daughn Gibson instantly reminds me of country music crooner Josh Turner combined with the eccentricity of folkster Father John Misty. However, Gibson isn’t so easy to musically classify as those two acts. My introduction (via CL writer Austin L. Ray. Yes I still read ATL’s CL even though I’m in Detroit. It is that good.) was by “Kissin’ On The Blacktop”, which has the swagger of an alt country bar burner. The rest of Gibson’s new album, Me Moan, varies from the slide guitar heavy sound of “All My Days” to the humming, eerie samples and keys of “Phantom Rider” and “Mad Ocean”. Stream Me Moan on Soundcloud and purchase via SubPop.
