Amen Dunes announce Freedom for 3/30 release

Amen Dunes last released an album in 2014. The album was called Love and I wasn’t really enamored with it at first. But a number of artists I like and respect really liked it so I kept going back to revisit and slowly I came around on it. Freedom is the new album by Amen Dunes (Damon McMahon) and it will be released on 3/30 via the fine folks at Sacred Bones. The tune below is called Miki Dora and as of 10 minutes ago, it is hands down my favorite tune by Amen Dunes. Here’s what McMahon has to say about the track.

“Miki Dora was arguably the most gifted and innovative surfer of his generation and the foremost opponent of surfing’s commercialization. He was also a lifelong criminal and retrograde: a true embodiment of the distorted male psyche. He was a living contradiction; both a symbol of free-living and inspiration, and of the false heroics American culture has always celebrated. With lyrics of regret and redemption at the end of one’s youth, the song is about Dora, and McMahon, but ultimately it is a reflection on all manifestations of mythical heroic maleness and its illusions.”
