Amen Dunes – Lower Mind from “Through Donkey Jaw”
Amen Dunes, the solo project of Damon McMahon, began with recordings made in the fall of 2006 in upstate New York. McMahon moved to China and he stayed in Beijing for the next few years, writing and recording only occasionally. With the release of DIA on Locust Music in 2009, however, he decided to move back to the States and form a band around Amen Dunes. In 2011 Amen Dunes’ latest album, McMahon’s first proper recordings in almost five years, “Through Donkey Jaw” was released from Sacred Bones Records, after the release of 2010′s “Murder Dull Mind” EP which was recorded at his apartment in Beijing.
