Amoeba Review

07/08/2013

Daughn Gibson’s truck-drivin’, girlfriend-stealin’ persona comes out in full force on his second album, Me Moan. Carrying with it All Hell’s country-noir ambiance, Me Moan presents Gibson with bigger, brighter production, offering steady electronic beats on “Phantom Rider,” over which spectral guitars, synths and Gibson’s ubermasculine baritone seduce. Gibson’s voice is an unusual instrument, unleashing unrelentingly deep tones through clenched teeth, calling to mind an unholy blend of Nick Cave and Johnny Cash. He curls around consonants and adds even more atmosphere to the proceedings on songs like “The Pisgee Nest” — just the way he says “state trooper’s daughter” elicits a sort of middle-of-nowhere, middle-of-the-night elicit affair, like something out of Twin Peaks. Musically Gibson keeps things fascinating throughout, using warped vocal samples on “You Don’t Fade” and electronic beats that keep a foot in the physical world via snaps and handclaps, while guitarists from Baronness and Brokeback echo rockabilly, horror soundtracks and classic country. Even while pulling from quite disparate genres and times, Me Moan is a remarkably cohesive listen, as Gibson’s distinctive tone splits the difference between tracks as different as the upbeat, country janglin’ “Kissin’ on the Blacktop” and the black-as-night electrobilly of “The Sound of Law.” Great for swirling whiskey or night driving.
