Dusk (Amos of Tenement) releasing 7″ (stream a track)
Tenement frontman Amos Pitsch also leads the band Dusk, whose lineup also includes Julia Blair, Ryley Crowe, Tyler Ditter, and Colin Wilde, and who have toured as an extended lineup of Tenement. They have an upcoming album for Don Giovanni (details TBA), but first they're releasing a single on Dirtnap Records with two songs that were recorded more recently than their upcoming album: the Amos Pitsch-penned "The Pain Of Loneliness (Goes On And On)" and the Tyler Ditter-penned "Go Easy."
We're premiering "The Pain Of Loneliness (Goes On And On)," which isn't too far removed from Tenement's garage punk, but has a strong country side. For influences, the band cites, "NRBQ, Sir Douglas Quintet, 50s, 60s, 70s, & 80s honky tonk country & soul music, The Beatles, The Stones, and perhaps the entire pantheon of American popular and folk musics" and that should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect. Listen below. The 7" comes out on March 23.
