Just off a tour supporting Mac DeMarco and in the midst of a run with Thee Silver Mt. Zion, Damon McMahon's Amen Dunes offers an entirely different vibe present on forthcoming album, Love, with new song "I Can't Dig It." This follows previously shared tracks, "Lonely Richard" and "Lilac In Hand." Featuring Godspeed You! Black Emperor's Efrim Menuck (lead guitar) and Colin Stetson (sax) alongsideParker Kindred (drums, percussion) and Damon (piano, synths, rhythm guitar, vocals) who wrote the song in China, "I Can't Dig It" celebrates all the good ways of failing.
Amen Dunes' Love is out May 13th on Sacred Bones. Read Noisey's interview with McMahon for more insight into McMahon and his Amen Dunes project here - http://bit.ly/1m7zt0t.
LISTEN TO/SHARE AMEN DUNES' "I CAN'T DIG IT" -
"Black sheep living, celebrating the goodness of being no good.
Failing at coping, loving, etc. - lazy beneath the banyan and doing just fine.
We suffocate when dreaming and wash away when we rise, bye bye loving, there's no use in trying.
The songs about loving the sh*t out of all the above.
Glory days for the poor son."
-- Damon McMahon
