The Independent Culture

Though Daughn Gibson’s second album has many qualities (tumbleweed atmospherics, understated exotica, country-soul song structures which recall Lambchop and Serge Gainsbourg), chief among them is the voice of the 6ft 5in former trucker itself.

An almost comically deep, rich baritone croon, it carries echoes of Scott Walker, Nick Cave, Elvis Presley and, more prosaically, the guy from Crash Test Dummies.
