Listen: Daughn Gibson - "You Don't Fade"

Not too long ago we got our first preview of Daughn Gibson's follow up to his brilliant debut All Hell in the form of "The Sound of Law" but just in case you thought you had any idea of what to expect from his sophomore record Me Moan, you can go ahead and count yourself wrong. Very very wrong.

One of the notable things about Daughn Gibson is how he seamlessly weaves samples together for his dusty rural croon and yet in "You Don't Fade", that Southern-esque soul and pseudo country swagger slips away some in favor of an eerie loop of female vocals. It was different enough that I thought I was listening to the wrong artist until Daughn Gibson entered his booming, smoky baritone. In "You Don't Fade", Daughn Gibson continues his exploration of dark textures and even darker subjects but in a new refreshing way that's more than just a rehash of All Hell. I mean just listen to the Mortal Kombat-esque chants he uses.

I have no idea what to expect on Me Moan but hell if I'm not incredibly excited about that. It's sure to be a very special record. Daughn Gibson's Me Moan is out July 9th on Sub Pop Records.
