Dallas's handsomely tripped-out True Widow spikes its shoegazey sound with hints of doom metal. Opening here is the fast-rising Daughn Gibson, who spins out country-noir ballads by sampling everything from gospel chants to Burialesque beats, anchoring the creepy atmospherics with his dark, booming voice. The stoner-metal drummer turned troubadour (he works for a trucking company by day) just released his debut, All Hell.
