Daughn Gibson announces new album Me Moan out July 9, has such a pretty voice no one will correct his grammar

Fair readers of Tiny Mix Tapes, do you know about sound waves? Are you familiar, I wonder, with their form, their function? If so, then I am sure you are quite familiar with the dangers that particular frequencies can harbor. I have no doubt you’ve heard tell of the potential for stabbing abdominal pain that a 2015 Hz blast secretly carries with it at all times, like a bowie knife sewn into the lining of its jacket. And there’s no need to remind you, clever reader, of the effect that a rumble at 27.5 Hz delivered in just such a way has on certain species of tropical birds.

Well, readers, I come to you today with a heavy heart to announce that Bill Callahan and Daughn Gibson have officially been disallowed from playing together in a live music context by the government agency in charge of such things as these. As we have previously reported, Callahan’s sensuous baritone is capable of forcibly disrobing all who hear. So too does Gibson’s voice carry with it a great power, like that of a wizard intently focused on nudity. The government agency in charge of these things would not go into the specifics of what exactly would occur if these two men were allowed to sing at the same time and in the same venue, they said only that it would likely end “in flames and lawsuits.”

Though this information surely comes as a shock to many, there is a substantial silver lining, my dear internet-mediated friends! Daughn Gibson has announced a new album Me Moan! Astute readers will note subtle references to Gibson’s interest in nudity and religion on the album’s cover, as it feature images of naked people in a church. The album, out July 9, is a follow-up to 2012’s excellent All Hell (TMT Review) and is Gibson’s first for Sub Pop. Lead single “The Sound of Law” (the name of which, one might observe, is quite fitting given the situation), is streamable below, though listeners are advised against listening to the song in concert with anything by Bill Callahan or Smog in the close presence of children, the elderly, or the recently deceased. Gibson will also tour quite extensively in support of his album, crisscrossing the fair nations of the world, balancing his desire to make awkwardly long eye contact with men and women everywhere with the restriction that he not do so in the near vicinity of Mr. Callahan.
