Amen Dunes
With Death Jokes, for the first time since the project's incarnation in 2006, the spiritual reflections and meditations of Amen Dunes are turned away from himself, and out sharply towards the world. The album is also a drastic turn musically and thematically, rooted in the electronic music of raves and of rap music he grew up with but never imagined himself able to make,  playing like a scathing electronic essay on America’s culture of violence, dominance, and destructive individualism. 

The work on Death Jokes began just weeks before the first word of the pandemic came in the winter of 2019; it was completed three years later as we began to emerge from the worst. The album's meaning morphed as the pandemic went on, first a reflection on our attachment to form, and to ourselves, and then shifting into a solemn indictment of our culture’s blind spots as we misjudge and attack, veiled self-centeredness and self-importance masquerading as morality."
Manchester based experimentalists Hyperdawn have honed their own distinct, hands-on approach to music making, using live reel-to-reel tape processing, electronics and vocals. From vast off-kilter beats to melting r’n’b croons, theirs is a language between pop and performance art.
