After releasing an album under his own name, Damon McMahon spent the fall of 2006 in a secluded trailer in the Catskills, recording songs he would share with a few friends and shelve for three years. These recordings were unearthed and released to critical acclaim in 2009, launching the celestial folk project Amen Dunes. Out March 30, Freedom sees McMahon reflecting on growing up alongside a powerful set of collaborators and friends.
Equiknoxx is the Jamaican music collective of Gavsborg, Time Cow, Shanique Marie, Bobby Blackbird, Kemikal Splash, and other contributors. Colón Man, their breakthrough 2017 album, acknowledges “the vital groundwork of previous generations of producers, whilst soundly contextualizing their mutant new advancements of Jamaican dancehall.” Marfa Myths marks one of the first US appearances for Equiknoxx.
Spencer Doran and Ryan Carlile comprise this Portland-based duo, which fluidly combines global ambient, minimalist, and Fourth World influences with new advances in computer music. Their 2017 album, Reassemblage, summons an exploration of the consciousness with both silence and sound. Visible Cloaks make their Texas debut at Marfa Myths.
2018 brings our most diverse and dynamic Marfa Myths lineup yet.
The lineup features legends of British post-punk, Wire, and Brazilian Tropicália, Tom Zé, leading women voices Jessica Pratt, Circuit Des Yeux and The Weather Station, acclaimed country singer and visual artist Terry Allen, fast folk raconteur Ryley Walker, Detroit dance producer Omar-S, Moroccan trance sextet Innov Gnawa, experimental Indonesian group Senyawa, Austin minimalist ensemble Thor & Friends and NYC’s maximalist Helado Negro Ensemble, pioneering electronic synthesist Suzanne Ciani, serene sound surveyor Laraaji, the site-specific Gravity Hill audio / visual collaboration of Jem Cohen, Guy Picciotto, and company, and our holy ambassador Connan Mockasin, and many more.
