Me Moan - SUB POP
FILTER Grade: 80%

In 1987, Patrick Swayze starred in Dirty Dancing and a couple years later he swapped the leotard for Levi’s in Roadhouse. Both became cult classics and while the success of these pictures never inspired a project combining risqué rhythms with cowboy shenanigans, the synthesis is here in Daughn Gibson’s Me Moan. Although there are moments on the album that, despite its ambition, simply feel like fool’s gold, others—like the honky-tonk-slash-futura-disco of “Phantom Rider”—shine like veritable gold flakes. Nobody puts Dalton in a corner.
