Daughn Gibson at Union Hall in May (more by BBG)
"Country-dubstep" singer Daughn Gibson, who was in NYC for two shows last month, is set to kick off another short run of dates this month. He'll be playing a couple NXNE shows and a few Northeast US shows including one in NYC during Northside Festival on Thursday (6/14) at Cameo Gallery with Bell, Heaven's Jail, and Motion Studies. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
If you've yet to hear Daughn's great debut LP, All Hell, you can stream it in full below along with a list of all dates...

Motion Studies is the musical alias of Tyler McCauley, who has logged time in various Brooklyn bands over the last couple years (Grooms, Teen Witch to name two), though MS is decidedly more beat-oriented. With vocals from Emma Collins and help from friends in Magic Bullets, Night Manager and Spanish Prisoners, McCauley released the Hearts Will Beat EP last month as a free download on Bandcamp. With a slowly rolling bassline and vocoder'd vocals, the title track is sinewy laptop funk that slowly takes root. The other two tracks are pretty good too -- you can stream it at the bottom of this post.
Look for a second Motion Studies EP in June, with the group's live debut happening around the same time.
