Dunes (LA)

LA band Dunes, who (like Bleached) include a former member of Mika Miko, are heading out on a tour this summer which brings them to NYC for two shows in August. Those shows include New Museum on August 24 with Brooklyn's Household and Death by Audio on August 26. Tickets for the New Museum show are on sale now. Dunes recently dropped the track, "Dirt," which you can stream below.

Dunes are not to be confused with Brooklyn producer Jordan Welner, who also operates under the moniker Dunes. That Dunes is playing Drom on Friday (7/20) with Kingdom, Kastle, Sleepyhead, and Figgy. Tickets for that show are on sale now. The Drom show is actually listed on LA Dunes' bandcamp page, though bandcamp tour dates are powered by songkick, which causes confusing things like this to happen. Check out a stream of one of Brooklyn's Dunes' songs below.

Who was first? Don't know who to make fun of in this case and I am too lazy to look it up.

Doesnt matter who is first...... Its matters who is better... And NY Dunes is far better, LA dunes just sounds like a lesser knock off of so many other artists
