Listen: Amen Dunes - Lilac In Hand

Psychedelic troubadour returns...
Amen Dunes

Psychedelia needn't point to fuzzed out riffs, wild drumming and even wilder hair.

There's a thread in the psychedelic universe - think Arthur Lee, Rodriguez - of the solo performer, the troubadour writhing within the cosmos.

New York's Damon McMahon - recording under the name Amen Dunes - is a key example. Now onto his third album, new release 'Love' drops on May 12th.

Ahead of this, Amen Dunes has unveiled the video for 'Lilac In Hand'. The track itself is frayed at the edges, with McMahon applying a painterly touch to the grey-flecked arrangement.

The video itself was shot on 16mm film by experimental filmmaker and Godspeed You! Black Emperor collaborator Karl Lemieux, you can watch it below.

Amen Dunes has confirmed the following shows:

19 Brighton The Old Market ( w/Mac de Marco)
21 Manchester Sound Control (w/ Mac de Marco)
22 London Koko (w/Mac de Marco)
