“Miki Dora” by Amen Dunes

This week we're featuring new music from Amen Dunes, the project of New York-based Damon McMahon!  On March 30th, he will release his boldest album yet, Freedom, on Sacred Bones.  In creating Freedom, McMahon brought in a powerful mix of collaborators and old friends including Parker Kindred (Antony & The Johnsons, Jeff Buckley) on drums, Chris Coady (Beach House) as producer, and Delicate Steve on guitars.  This is the first Amen Dunes record that looks back to the electronic influences of McMahon’s youth.  On the surface, Freedom is a reflection on growing up, childhood friends who ended up in prison or worse, male identity, McMahon’s father, and his mother, who was diagnosed with terminal cancer at the beginning of recording.  The characters that populate the musical world of the album are a colorful mix of reality and fantasy.  Each character portrait is a representation of McMahon.  Check out the video for the lead single Miki Dora!
