Amen Dunes - Freedom
I don't know what kind of freedom McMahon is looking for, if any. Maybe it is just the freedom you grant to yourself to look at the past, remember, judge, and forgive. Maybe it is the freedom to clean out the corners of the emotional attic and move on with life. Maybe it will give you a journey to freedom, as well as immediate pleasure. And you'll dance -- even if you are crying. McMahon has said that "[y]ou make art to make good art, you don't make art to get accolades." While we appreciate the sentiment, we believe that good art deserves accolades regardless of expectations, and we suggest that Freedom deserves accolades -- and your ears. Suggested listening approaches: (1) Earphones; or (2) Driving at night with a good audio system.
Freedom is out now in vinyl, CD and digital formats via Sacred Bones Records. See the Bandcamp link below.
