Daughn Gibson – “Phantom Rider” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Daughn Gibson’s Me Moan was our favorite album of the week when it came out in July, and now he has a creepy video for “Phantom Rider,” a strange song that tied his country drawl to a near-house music production. In the Ferry Gouw-directed video, Gibson sings through darkness and smoke while a skull i… More »

Daughn Gibson – “Kissin On The Blacktop” Video

In his typically ace Album Of The Week piece on the new Daughn Gibson LP Me Moan, our Tom B. says “Kissin On The Blacktop” is “a rockabilly ramble taken apart and reassembled in a gleaming-white laboratory, like what Dirty Beaches might sound like if that guy was actually interested in convincing large numbers of… More »

Album Of The Week: Daughn Gibson Me Moan

Sometime in the late ’80s or early ’90s, David Lynch and cartoonishly handsome honky-tonk revivalist Chris Isaak inexplicably became good buds. Lynch used Isaak songs in Blue Velvet and Wild At Heart and directed a lesser-seen video for Isaak’s immortal “Wicked Game” (the one without Helena Christensen in it). Then, Isaak played whatever passed for… More »

Daughn Gibson – “The Sound Of Law”

Last year, Daughn Gibson, a foxy Pennsylvania man who used to play drums for stoner-rockers Pearls & Brass, released the solo debut All Hell, which threw Gibson’s miles-deep voice over soft electronic soundscapes in ways that reminded me a whole lot of the Crash Test Dummies. On the strength of that album, Gibson signed to… More »

Daughn Gibson – “Reach Into The Fire”

Earlier this year, the former Pearls & Brass drummer Daughn Gibson hit the radar with his solo debut All Hell, which found him, basically, singing old-school country in a miles-deep voice over twinkly self-produced electronics. That’s a rare combination, and it’s one that got him noticed — so much so that Sub Pop has just… More »
