'I was born a wolf in woman's clothes'; Laura Gibson once again employs that dripping, wet-lipped register that she has mastered to deliver another pack of substantial ballads. Gibson has swung around a few genres in her career, from fairly straight folk pop on her debut to Waitsian Southern Gothic. Goners continues the feel of her previous record 'Empire Builder'; a slightly cracked delivery of breathy, warm tales of love, loss and independence.
