In making ‘Freedom’, Amen Dunes shifts from whimsical guitars and warbly melancholic vocals to a darker electronic sound. Frontman Damen McMahon calls upon his usual star-studded collaborators; drummer Parker Kindred (Antony & The Johnsons, Jeff Buckley), Chris Coady (Beach House) and let them work their magic in Electric Lady Studios. Three years later, the resulting LP is an ode to coming-of-age and understanding oneself despite rigid societal expectations of masculinity. Or, as McMahon calls it, “mythical heroic maleness”. I guess this one’s for the intellectually minded music fan.
12” Vinyl EP from Amen Dunes, made up of the bits that didn’t quite fit or make it onto his album Love. Alternative versions of songs from the album display the raw sound of Damon McMahon’s voice, coming out somewhere between Rolf Klausener of The Acorn and Tim Buckley - fitting as here there is also a cover of This Mortal Coil’s version of the Buckley Track Song to the Siren.
