Artist: AMEN DUNES
Title: Ethio Covers
Format: 7"
Label: Amen Dunes
Country: USA
Price: $5.00
"The newest release from Damon McMahons Amen Dunes, Ethio Covers is a downer take on three Ethiopiques tracks culled from unnamed tapes. After hearing the songs coming each night through his neighbors wall, he decided to learn the tracks note for note and replicate them through the Amen Dunes lens, overdubbing all the instruments and vocals. The result is a slow motion glow of devotion and nostalgia, filtered through New York City summertime haze. Limited edition pressing of 300." -Amen Dunes.

Title: Dia
Format: LP
Label: Locust
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"A lot of crazy shit can happen to a man when he goes solitary in a ramshackle Catskill Mountain home for an extended stretch of time -- especially for a city kind of guy. But if Amen Duness 12 tracker Dia is one possible outcome of the guy alone-in-a-cabin- story, then a little tape saturated brain frying is something we should all live comfortably with because this is a batch of seriously raw & inspired loner psych grit that owes a debt to the DIY soundz of the George Brigmans of the world. That was 2006. These days the lone wolf behind Amen Dunes -- Damon McMahon -- calls a small two room apartment overlooking the Temple of Earth in North-Central Beijing home, where he watches old men fly kites and sing opera every morning. Who knows whatll come out of that." -Locust

Title: Murder Dull Mind
Format: 12"
Label: Sacred Bones
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Recorded while DAMON MCMAHON was living as an expatriate in China, AMEN DUNES presents seven new stunning works of sunlit haziness. During the two years he lived abroad, he lived most of the time in an apartment on the north end of Beijing. He tracked these songs one summer in that apartment. With the exception of "Diane" and "Murder Dull Mind," all of these songs were recorded in one take and are completely improvisational; on repeated listens though, there is a pop-ness to these songs amidst the improvisation. The title track in particular, a melodic mantra-like work could certainly function on its own as a single. Although the songs have a bit less pre-written structure than Amen Dunes previous work on the Locust label, they are still every bit as miraculous. The geographical influence on his work central to both writing and recording conditions is evident here as these songs are way more open, and generally more free than his debut Dia (recorded in 2006 in a Catskills cabin) was. A bit less psych freak out and a bit more dark folk vibe throughout." - Sacred Bones.
