Can the high quality musical content of this blog continue like this on this daily basis? YES IT CAN brothers and sisters; pump up the volume!!!

I started posting one-a-day lately to try and catch up with my backlog of great new discoveries / additions but, would you believe it, I’m falling even further behind, mostly due to my massive catch-up session with Dandelion Radio, by far my favourite station. With this in mind, I’m all scheduled up for at least the next 60 days henceforth.

Today, a gem from Amen Dunes, a 10-year-old band from New York fronted by singer-songwriter and musician Damon McMahon. On paper, a cover of Tim Buckley’s phenomenal song is on a hiding to nothing, but these guys have pulled it off, respect is due. Damon can sure tremble some vocal cord, and some of that guitar shimmer from Ben Greenberg (formerly of the Men) seals the deal.

This was another heard on Mark Whitby’s February 2015 show on Dandelion Radio.

Available at Bandcamp.
