Amen Dunes, Weyes Blood, Xander Duell 

When: Wed., April 1, 9 p.m. 2015
Price: $12
Started in 2006 as a shambolic solo venture, Damon McMahon’s Amen Dunes eventually grew into a full band that fills out ragged almost-folk songs with lush, dreamy, atmospheric backing. On the new Cowboy Worship EP (Sacred Bones Records), McMahon pares it down like he did in the early days. A sort of rambling, loose storytelling thread runs through dark, acoustic slow burns made up of only his voice, guitar, and sparse contributions from occasional collaborators, like Harvey Milk’s Stephen Tanner and guitar mastermind Ben Greenberg (currently of Hubble and noise-rock act Uniform). The highlight of Cowboy Worship is a cover of Tim Buckley’s “Song to the Siren,” which features gut-wrenchingly raw vocals backed up by airy soundscapes and bubbly, bloopy finger tapping from Greenberg. —Luca Cimarusti
