On his debut solo LP All Hell, Daughn Gibson crafted the kind of tortured, lonesome numbers any cowboy could love – but while Gibson's heavy baritone and the LP's melodies cried out country, he put his own spin on the genre, using samples and looping software to build songs that echoed across landscapes, both digital and pastoral. On Me Moan, his second LP and first for Sub Pop (out July 9th), Gibson shows he's toying with and expanding his formula: Opener "The Sound of Law" sets to swing before barreling forward, propelled by snares that pump like pistons and Gibson's cavernous croon.
