I was happy to stumble upon this because I can’t say that I really enjoy country music. I was feeling adventurous I suppose. I usually go for the darker more soulful sounds of Johnny Cash, Tom Waits, or Steve Earle.
Yeah yeah yeah they’re not really country. But you’re not going to get me to listen to Toby Keith or Garth Brooks. It makes my ears want to vomit. It sounds worse than it looks.

Daughn Gibson, the former drummer of southern metal band Pearls and Brass, got together a small band to try for a more country sounding art-rock sound. It reminds me a lot of Puscifer (Maynard James Keenan’s more recent project) with the modern minimalist drum beat, spacey guitar licks, and the female vocal swooning in the background. The song was performed on NPR KRCW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic earlier this month.

It’s quite an enjoyable tune but watching Gibson’s face while crooning was both humorous and painful.

Look at it! Look at that scowl!

It’s not as bad as Garth Brook’s face and cowboy hat combo but close enough.

So let’s face it. I enjoy the instrumental more than the vocal styling but it’s still a good listen.
