New EP: Amen Dunes – Cowboy Worship (2015/01/20) [Full EP Stream] / New Single ‘Song to the Siren’

:: Can’t get enough of this track!


Cowboy Worship is officially released in North America next Tuesday (January 20, 2015) via Sacred Bones Records. The EP will be available as digital download and 12″ vinyl in a limited edition one-time only pressing of 1.000. Additionally, Sacred Bones offers a Limited Edition Version of 200 hand-numbered and wax-sealed copies in deluxe packaging with alternate screen-printed wrap-around sleeve. You can buy the digital EP from iTunes or order your physical copy of Cowboy Worship directly from Sacred Bones.

Until release day, the EP is streaming in its entirety over at Pitchfork Advance. The EP includes a brilliant cover of This Mortal Coil‘s version of the Tim Buckley standard Song to the Siren – take a listen above. Cowboy Worship further features five alternate versions of songs from Amen Dunes latest full-length Love, released in May 2014.

“Cowboy Worship is an attempt to give life to some of the music that didn’t make it past the scalpel. From a blown-out version of “Green Eyes” featuring Harvey Milk’s Stephen Tanner, to a darker and mellower “I Can’t Dig It” as Damon McMahon originally arranged it upon writing the song in China, many of the original intentions for the music that were lost in the Love sessions are revived. In addition is a band version of Through Donkey Jaw’s “Lezzy Head,” featuring Dunes mainstays Jordi Wheeler and Parker Kindred, and most significantly, a shining cover of […] “Song to the Siren,” featuring Ben Greenberg (Hubble) on guitar.” [label press release]
