With his scruffy stubble and Stetson hat, it’s easy to equate Daughn Gibson with “cowboy.” Of course, there’s more to the adventurous Central PA songwriter than just that. On his brand new Me Moan, out this week on Sub Pop Records, Gibson works an impressive country drawl, yes, but also an incredible sense of mood and texture. Enter the pulsing electronics and mood-setting strings, the booming echo and evocative layers of voices of “The Sound Of Law” – it’s the opening track on the album and the song we’re starting the week off with. Every day, we’ll feature Me Moan on Unlocked, The Key’s regular spotlight on new and significant releases from Philadelphia-area artists. Tomorrow we’ll have a review, later in the week an interview and a look into Gibson’s metal / prog lineage – a definite source of his knack for vibe. Today, get your free download of “The Sound of Law” below, courtesy of Sub Pop, and check back for more on Daughn Gibson all week long on Unlocked.
