amenNew York-based Amen Dunes – Damon McMahon – shares, ‘I Can’t Dig It’, a surprisingly emotional song taken from his forthcoming LP ‘Love’, out May 12th via Sacred Bones.

Amen Dunes explains: “Black sheep living, celebrating the goodness of being no good. Failing at coping, loving, etc. – lazy beneath the banyan and doing just fine.

‘I Can’t Dig It’ features Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s Efrim Menuck (lead guitar) and Colin Stetson (sax) alongside Parker Kindred (drums, percussion) and Damon (piano, synths, rhythm guitar, vocals) who wrote the song in China.
