Amen Dunes
Amen Dunes

Amen Dunes, the current psych-folk project of Damon McMahon is in the midst of a series of CMJ shows. Today (10/21), he'll play a Chouette/De Stijl/FatCat/Soft Abuse day party with Pigeons, Forest Fire, Jerusalem & the Starbasket and DJ Paul Collins (of Beirut/Soft Landing). Tonight (10/21), he'll play the Sacred Bones showcase at Saint Vitus with Gary War, Psychic Ills, and Led Er Est. Tickets for that showcase are on sale now.

After CMJ, Amen Dunes will play a few shows with Harmonizer, including one at Glasslands on Sunday (10/23). Che Chen & Robbie Lee are also on the bill. Tickets are on sale now.

Amen Dunes and Sacred Bones labelmate Gary War will share another NYC bill together on Halloween (10/31) at 285 Kent with Noveller (who he played with last night at Littlefield) and Prince Rama.

Speaking of Pigeons, who play the Chouette/De Stijl/FatCat/Soft Abuse day party at Bruar Falls, their LP They Sweetheartstammers will be released November 8 via Soft Abuse. The band, like Amen Dunes, is from New York and creates a similar brand of stark psych-folk that should make for great back to back sets. You can grab two tracks off the upcoming album, "Tournoi" and "Dead Echo," above, and check out the artwork and tracklist below, along with the video for "Turnoi". The album is available for preorder at the Soft Abuse webstore. They also recently performed live in-studio versions of three other album tracks and one older song at Black Dirt Studios. You can stream those below.

All dates, video, streams, album art and tracklist below...

cool glasses

Someday soon, in the near future, glasses will eventually cover 90 percent of peoples' faces. They'll be maskglasses.

no shitty BBG posts yet today? did he pull another all-nighter, taking photos of sausage and working himself up into a fit of rage at the Anons who traffic this site and on whom he depends for his pathetic, deluded existence?

those glasses look like the glasses old people used to wear in the '70s.

That is the ugliest human being I have ever seen

Some of the trash talk on this board is really undeserved/needlessly cruel; this is not one of those times.

Unless that's a picture of Helen Keller, the clown-sized glasses thing has to stop.

Is it even possible to not hate this woman?

Posted by Anonymous | October 21, 2011 1:26 PM

How can she pass for psych-folk without odd accessories? Come on people, it's like you want her to rely on the merit of her music or something silly like that.

ps - Amen Dunes is pretty awesome! Give a listen.

Why would you name your band Pigeons?? Really??! Oh yeah, all the other avian-themed name have been claimed. Tough when you start a band in 2011 that is based on a pre-historic creature.

Pigeons? Look more like Turtles to me.

Looking at that picture of those two stupid hipster twats makes me hate my generation with the burning passion of a thousand suns.

JESUS....I used to fuck that bitch. Hummus squirted out of her ass every time I'd pour my dick into her pussy. We always did it listening to the S P I N (wait for it....) D O C T O R S.

Pigeons kind of look like Steely Dan

Posted by Anonymous | October 21, 2011 6:39 PM

Yes that black and white old Steely Dan picture and Walter Becker is probably not clean at that time.
