Product Description

It's on Daughn's second album and Sub Pop debut, Me Moan, that he truly reveals himself to the world. If All Hell was a gritty black-and-white movie, Me Moan is a widescreen IMAX 3D extravaganza. While the roots of All Hell's sample-based music remain, these songs are performed live, lushly detailed and richly orchestrated. Live drums, guitars (by John Baizley of Baroness and Jim Elkington of Brokeback), pedal steel, horns, house strings, bagpipes and organs appear on this record. Tracklisting: 1.The Sound of Law 2.Phantom Rider 3.Mad Ocean 4.The Pisgee Nest 5.You Don't Fade 6.Franco 7.Won't You Climb 8.The Right Signs 9.Kissin on the Blacktop 10.All My Days Off 11.Into the Sea

By Red on Black TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Mixing country music with other genres is a risky business and many in Nashville still look askance at that wicked concept constructed through the devils work - namely country rock. Imagine then mixing country with British Dub step music or spliced with electronica? It sounds plain daft but in the hands of the tall and imposing Daughn Gibson a native of the state of Pennsylvania it is a rather dubious cocktail which brings forth a nice taste on the palate. Gibson was a former drummer in the stoner metal band Pearls & Brass for a number of years and prior to that a box packer, trucker, bookseller and no doubt on the 7th day he rested. "Me Moan' follows his 2012 debut "All Hell" which this reviewer has not heard but my well seek out on the solid evidence contained here.

Gibson's voice is also a central factor. The charitable will detect echoes of the great Scott Walker or Nick Cave, the less charitable will point to the resemblance to the deep tones of the lead singer with the Crash Test dummies or even an Elvis impersonator. Let us extend the milk of human kindness/reason and argue that Scott Walker is the template here. This is reinforced by the general excellence of the songwriting. Thus this album comprises great songs like the rolling pounding piano driven closer "Into the sea" where Gibson's voice is at its very best. Even more radical within the somewhat narrow confines of country is "Phantom Riser" which does a decent impression of Depeche Mode. The deconstruction of a genre continues on "We wont climb" which is almost a slow dance track and yet it still works proving pedal Steel and pulse drums as unlikely bedfellows.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brooding 10 July 2013
By Syriat TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
There is something about a deep voiced American male singers that just brings out equal parts melancholia, bitterness and regret. Its this that makes Daughn Gibson's second album very much a dark affair in terms of mood and lyric. Its been described as electronic country by some critics and if that sounds an odd mixture I can assure you that it works. Often with samples supporting the deepest of voices (think Crash Test Dummies Brad Roberts) there isn't much here that's going to you dancing or lift your mood. But this ex-truckers tales of Americana are fascinating and attention grabbing.

Phantom Rider sounds more electronic that country. It reminds me of Washed Out's album last year for some reason. Kissing on the Blacktop is a really swaggering number with its roots in rock and country. You Don't Fade is eerily like something off Robbie Robertson's first solo effort. In fact that mood is probably what this album reminds me of.

Me Moan is a grower of an album. It has enough highlights to keep you coming back but doesn't quite hold together as an album of the year contender. That said its original and moody and shows great promise.

The deconstruction of a genre continues on "We won't climb" which is almost a slow dance track and yet it still works proving pedal Steel and pulse drums as unlikely bedfellows. Despite the swirling backdrop a more straight forward country tack is "Kissing on the blacktop" where Gibson's baritone is an the forefront pushing the song forward. Mid track "The Pisgee Nest" is much heavier affair and sounds more like the gothic country that the Handsome Family specialises in. The penultimate track "All my days off" is the one that constantly draws the needle to the play button for this reviewer. It is a soft aching ballad full of regret and angst but underpinned by a lovely melody. As for the the pedal steel backdrop its almost to heartbreaking to describe.

Not surprisingly not all of this works and some songs like the "Right Signs" sounds like Yeasayer with a deep voice. Equally some parts of this album are easier to admire than love. But full marks to Daughn Gibson for the sheer gall of his experimentation/ambition. All music fans will now wait with baited breath for his future musical output with the hope of a forthcoming country and death metal mix!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Of 2013 (Without A Doubt) 9 July 2013
By oxxo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"Granddaddy So Hot
He Left Me In The Parking Lot
Kissin On The Blacktop"

Gibson's sophomore release solidifies the synth-twang brooding spookiness of his debut "All Hell" album, and also delivers a couple of stellar radio-friendly tracks.

"Won't You Climb" is appealingly 80s pop-country, and the slide steel funk of "Kissin' On The Blacktop" is absolutely irresistible.

Gibson has a unique (some would say "novel") voice that, to me, perfectly suits the tone of his work. For some listeners, Gibson's voice may be distractingly reminiscent of Brad Roberts (of Crash Test Dummies - remember them?)

Already in my top ten releases for the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Daughn Gibson is the real deal 20 Aug 2013
By Sage - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
With a voice that sounds like the north wind howling through the canyons and caverns Daughn brings it. I mean he really brings it! I was bumping this album in the parking of a popular USMC hangout in Oceanside when a small group of marines gathered around my truck and demanded to know who this amazing singer/songwriter with aa "voice like Thor" was. I gave one of them my CD and told him I'd get another. I expect Daughn is providing the soundtrack to the the rest of the sounds of freedom locally on Camp Pendleton and overseas where it's really happening. Mostly, I'm just glad to have some great rock and roll in my ride again.

Don't like to write reviews cause music is all relative to the listener, but somebody's gotta say something in hopes this guy never quits make the sounds he makes. He should have quite an interesting career.
5.0 out of 5 stars Hope This Guy Sticks Around 30 July 2013
By SavageHenry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Really unique sonic juxtaposition that blends an icy, modern aesthetic with traditional rock instrumentation. Gibson's vocals are polarizing--the deep drawls seem to have elicited some superficial reviews from major media outlets--but underneath are solid lyrics that paint surreal imagery. A perfect (and far less obnoxious sounding) companion to David Lynch's new release.
