Amen Dunes stands for dark wayward guitar sounds. It is the project of Damon Mc Mahon (Philadelphia, USA).
His solo career started in 2006, when he released the album ‘Mansions’ under his own name. Later that year he began recording as Amen Dunes, sequestering himself in a cabin in the Catskills (NY).
Nowadays Amen Dunes seems to be drawing attention of a larger audience and to be understood. The new album ‘Love’ is his most accessible record, but still it sounds claustrophobic, inimitable, deliberately sloppy and incomplete. He has been working on ‘Love’ for a year and a half, collaborating with members of Iceage and Godspeed You! Black Emperor.
