Music Monday: Amen Dunes

It's been quite a long time since I've been compelled to share a Music Monday post but I have not stopped listening to the newest release from Amen Dunes. I was on Twitter the other night and by happenstance, I read a timely Pitchfork tweet of a live link to their show in Brooklyn. Instantly a fan. I had listened to a few of Amen Dunes' older songs many years ago but never truly connected until this week. Here are a few of their latest songs that I've had on repeat:


"Blue Rose"

"Skipping School"


Damon McMahon is the mastermind behind New York's Amen Dunes. Their latest album, Freedom, is out now and can be purchased here.


Flick Pick/Get Lit: Sharp Objects

I finally read Gillian Flynn's intriguing debut thriller, Sharp Objects, a few years ago. I couldn't put it down. When I learned that HBO was developing a limited series around the material, I was all in. The casting hits the spot and Jean-Marc Vallee (Big Little Lies) is directing. Amy Adams is one of my favorite actresses; her range and ability to portray so many different types of characters is not credited highly enough. If you're a fan of dark thrillers with a female lead, I imagine you might be a fan of this project. I recommend checking out the book before the miniseries premieres on July 8th. It's a quick read and does not disappoint. If you enjoyed The Sinner, you will probably like this one as well.
