Amen Dunes "Freedom (Sacred Bones)"
If you are only as good as the friends you keep, then Damon McMahon aka Amen Dunes is like the best dude around. He’s worked with everyone from Godspeed You! Black Emperor to our pal Delicate Steve. Now THAT is some stellar company. It helps that the dude is enormously talented, as is evident on his latest collection Freedom (Sacred Bones). Sure it’s darker than his previous albums, yet he’s somehow found joy in his sorrow, creating songs that are at times danceable and funky, and at other times are grimy and tough. In fact, Pitchfork referred to the first single “Blue Rose” as “his most immediate music to date” so go ahead and check it out!
