Amen Dunes’ Love took close to a year and a half, 16 musicians, and five different studios to complete. It was a song cycle that required broad experimentation before it was clear what was essential underneath the surface. In that process, much of the sound that might have made it onto the album was lost. There was just too much to say for one record.
One description that seemed to work for Love was that it was an album of devotional music, and even more specifically, a type of devotional music McMahon called cowboy worship. Cowboy worship as a concept certainly did not begin with Love, but instead Love began with cowboy worship, was born from it, and in turn added a new link to the chain.

a couple of daze into the social isolation, I found this tune, and I recognised it from the time when I walked into a disco, and it was so good, so well here we are..

American Southern Gothic, ranging from Julee Cruise-type cinematic "Nothing Feels the Same", to the stripped acoustic guitar & gauzy multi-tracked vocals on "Shadow Show Diane", to the traditional Americana folk suddenly interrupted by an early 70s Krautrock band complete with synth drone on fave. Lyrically quite individual & interesting. Her most consistently good album. agutterfan
