“Popular country music prides itself on reproducing tradition; its lack of innovation and inability to evolve with shifting trends is one of its virtues, both musically and ideologically. From Jimmie Rodgers and Hank Williams, Sr. to Keith Urban and Jason Aldean, not much has changed. Sure, there are electric guitars, pre-ripped jeans, and hair-stylists now, and Miranda Lambert packs stadiums with revenge-songs about setting her loversâ€™ trailers on fire, but the basic songwriting themes and instrumentation have not evolved with the times. And this is what makes All Hell so refreshing and special: It wipes away the dust and brings fresh ideas into the room. Finally, a musician whose record collection, or iTunes library, sounds as if it could contain albums by Cash, Conway Twitty, Elvis, Balam Acab, The Caretaker, Portishead, and Washed Out created music that synthesizes these diverse influences. It was only a matter of time before fans of country music got their hands on samplers and began integrating contemporary techniques and sounds from other music communities into traditional country music. Daughn Gibsonâ€™s All Hell proclaims that the time is now.” Tiny Mix Tapes
If you pre-order Me Moan from your good friends here at Sub Pop, youâ€™ll receive at no extra charge, a limited-edition Daughn Gibson seven inch featuring the songs â€śEvery Night I Fall in Loveâ€ť b/w â€śBrandy and Daughnâ€ť. Daughn himself describes the single this way: â€śWay back in the year 2002, I produced two R&B singles for a teenage sister group caled â€śNo Optionâ€ť out of a small recording booth located in a ballerina studio. As payment I received a Korg D1600, and these two songs were among the first solo things I ever recorded on it." As you can surmise, this is likely going to be a rare piece in future record collections. Weâ€™re also going to be giving people who pre-order Me Moan on LP the limited, colored-vinyl Loser Edition. Such is the nature of limited-edition things, when theyâ€™re gone, theyâ€™re gone, so get your order in quickly!
