Daughn Gibson [Listen]

Think Nicolas Jaar meets John Maus. From Pennsylvania comes Daughn Gibson, originally a member of stoner-metal trio Pearls and Brass, Gibson’s new blend of music is a mix of folk and dub-step. He’s got a way of combining dirty rhythms and heavy beats with harmonic vocals. It’s like Perfume Genius with muscle.

To quote Pitchfork, “His thick baritone breezes confidently over the songs, lassoing hook after hook, redeeming his burnt-out characters through song”

This track, In The Beginning is one of my favorites from his debut album All Hell (2012), and is a good starter track to get you into the rest of his stuff. He’s currently touring in the US, let’s hope he takes a trip to London soon.
