Daughn Gibson Channels Gustavo Fring in 'Phantom Rider' Video

Pennsylvania honky tonk beatsmith shares clip from excellent 'Me Moan' LP

The inimitable Daughn Gibson returns with a video for his Me Moan standout "Phantom Rider." The song itself is that entrancingly odd mixture of four-on-the-floor beat, glistening warped guitar, disembodied choral samples, and honky-tonk croon, and the new clip is no less strange. Directed by Ferry Gouw (Major Lazer, Bloc Party), the Stereogum premiere finds the Pennsylvania adonis-type swaying to the finger-snapping beat, sometimes shirtless, and sometimes skinless. Smoke drifts up behind the man's distorted silhouette, implying the waft of brimstone across this black-and-white hellscape. A combination of narcotic strangeness and Gustavo Fring tribute prevails. Watch above, and revisit SPIN's Daughn Gibson profile, plus the video for "Kissin' on the Blacktop."
