Daughn Gibson – Phantom Rider

All due respect to Nicolas Cage, but this is a form of ghost riding we can actually get behind. Gibson is a supremely weird performer and “Phantom Rider” perfectly captures his dark edge that constantly carves along the border of surely not being serious. The twisted country twang allows for the storytelling that the song’s and video’s 80s-era 120 Minutes vibe can’t quite accommodate on its own. Like Gibson’s live set, the video won’t let you turn away until the show’s over.
