News: Daughn Gibson announces release of second album ‘Me Moan’!
Pennsylvanian crooner Daughn Gibson has announced the release of his greatly anticipated second album and Sub Pop debut, ‘Me Moan’, out on 5th July through Inertia.
If Gibson’s debut 2012 record ‘All Hell’ was a gritty black-and-white movie, ‘Me Moan’ is a widescreen IMAX 3D extravaganza. While the roots of sample-based music remain, these songs are performed live, lushly detailed and richly orchestrated. To name but a small selection, live drums, pedal steel, horns, house strings, bagpipes and organs appear on this record but never does it feel over-stuffed. Every instrument or melody is perfectly in place and John Baizley (Baroness) and Jim Elkington (Brokeback) provide stunning performances.

‘Me Moan’ isn’t just Gibson’s primal scream, it’s a skirmish through the full spectrum of emotion, unfiltered and impassioned. You’ll throw it all to the wind during “Kissin on the Blacktop” and nurse your hangover with “Into the Sea”. You’ll protect your loved ones against “The Pisgee Nest” and hold them close during “Franco”. You’ll send “Phantom Rider” after your enemies and feel remorse alongside “All My Days”.
Like Cormac McCarthy or Robert Altman, Daughn Gibson is a uniquely American artist who throws his soul into his work, free of compromise, possessed by unique vision. Both foreign and familiar, Gibson’s music is immediately striking and his booming baritone voice makes for powerful Americana songs, which are as frequently tender as they are prurient.
‘Me Moan’ is due out July 5th through Inertia
