Daughn Gibson, Cedar AV 

When: Fri., Nov. 9, 9:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $8

Josh Martin recorded All Hell, his debut under the name Daughn Gibson, at home and by himself in a small Pennsylvania town after the end of his skewed stoner-blues band Pearls & Brass. Haunted by the deep brood of Merle Haggard, fascinated by the stories he'd gathered as a truck driver, and predisposed to play nothing very straight, Martin began penning country songs full of ghosts and reverb, eccentricities and samples. All Hell suggests Lee Hazelwood burrowing into a cave of self-indulgence and isolation, unexpected parts embedded within unlikely anthems. The intriguing album has earned Martin a deal with indie giant Sub Pop, but so far, that rise in status hasn't slowed the individual nature of his ways. That's good, too, as Martin's oddity remains the sharpest selling point of his narrative creekers. You can go to any used record store and go home with a crackling country tune, but only Gibson's profoundly sad "Lookin' at 99" suggests Boards of Canada backing your best Stetson crooner. Milwaukee's Cedar A.V. opens. Tonight in Raleigh, this is the show to see. —Grayson Currin
