Just Released: Daughn Gibson’s Me Moan

Daughn Gibson Me Moan

 

Sub Pop recording artist Daughn Gibson has received heaps upon heaps of praise for his latest release, Me Moan.  Here are just a few of the many kind words:

“Think of it as Mark Lanegan meets Portishead, or Nick Cave goes Country, or Ian Curtis’ great lost album.” [Album of the Week] The Sunday Times (UK)

“The desolate blend of despair and deep, deep affection is unlike anything I’ve ever encountered in pop.” [4 stars] The Independent (UK)

“The double-time snare rolls and tremolo’d guitars of ‘The Sound of Law’ still evoke outlaw country, as do Gibson’s tall tales of being born on the roadside to a beast of a man. Yet this isn’t the urgency you’d expect from someone truly on the run– in this context, ‘The Sound of Law’ is where Gibson discovers 5-Hour Energy or some other upper that’s slightly more illicit. It sounds like the uncomfortable, caged urgency one feels in the cabin, as Gibson tries, desperately, to find an end in sight.” – Pitchfork 

“Gibson is in equal measures a country crooner, electro pioneer, warped fantasist and courteous gentleman…A bizarre and thrilling listen, Me Moan‘s woozy journey involves grinding guitars, gothic atmospherics and swaggering grooves. Oh, and bagpipes.” – The Guardian

“The spectacular Me Moan is a genre-pulverising collection of creepy modern murder ballads and damaged, neon-lit Americana” – NME

Take a listen to the album in its entirety here, and be sure to grab your tickets to see him live in Madison with Steve Gunn and Oedipus Tex.  Speaking of rave reviews, Evan from Strictly Discs had some lovely words to say about both Daughn and Steve as well…
