Daughn Gibson released his second album, Me Moan, this month. Me Moan was an interesting mix of music and vocals that didn’t lend to the most cohesive sound. With a seemingly hard continuous sound to find, the track can be a little long to listen as it hits many different feels and sounds- an almost western sound with “Kissin on the Blacktop”, an electronic vibe with “All My Days” to an alternative sound in “All My Days”- rather than a continuous one that many listeners look for in an album.
Gibson’s voice is about as deep a baritone as possible it seems in some tracks. A beautiful sound for the most part but many times his accent is even thicker than his voice is deep and the lyrics are swallowed. While difficult to understand at times because of it, I wouldn’t say that it adds any problems to the overall sound of the album, as his voice overpowers most in it as well, leaving listeners unconcerned with what he is saying. The lyrics ranged from insightful and full of story in “The Sound of Law” to almost campy filled versus in “Phantom Rider” and “Mad Ocean”.
