It’s tough to listen to the melancholy, slacker-psych rock single “Believe” and not be swept away with the sad, cryptic imagery of Damon McMahon’s lyricism. It should be mesmerizing to hear live, and we’ll get a chance to do so this coming Monday at the 7th St. Entry where Amen Dunes headlines (tix/info).
