Amen Dunes will release their new album Love (Sacred Bones) on May 13, and in late February they released a song “Lonely Richard” as a preview. Early in February, we captured the band’s short opening slot at Glasslands and the set featured two new songs including “Rocket Flare” (streaming below). The new Amen Dunes album isn’t like the previous two which were essentially Damon McMahon’s bedroom studio project. Love is a fully formed studio work produced by members of Godspeed and featuring multiple guests. But McMahon hasn’t abandoned what had made this group so compelling from the start and what impressed us so much for two recordings back in 2012 — a sort of mysterious, reverb-laden psychedelic sound that conjures up a litany of influences while not entirely lifting from any of them.

I recorded this set with our installed Naiant rig and mixed with an excellent soundboard feed provided by house FOH Josh. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!
