Lunes is the second album by the Texas psychedelic duo Headdress. Written in the desert but recorded during an endless New York City winter, the album is a dark meditation on Americana. Guitarist Caleb Coy and organist Ethan Cook sculpt a cold, expansive sound made ripe for these turbulent times. It’s the blues shaped by the avant-compositions of La Monte Young and Dylan Carlson. It’s drone rooted deep in the American tradition.
Headdress formed in 2006. Part-heshers, part-American nomads. They self-released their first album Turquoise as a limited CDR and traveled the country, sleeping in cars and dwelling in caves but eventually ending up in New York City. The vinyl only label Mexican Summer reissued the album in September 2008 coinciding with a US tour with Dungen. They entered the studio to record their follow-up soon after.
The LP version of Lunes is limited to 1000 copies and includes a coupon for a mp3 download. Out June 9th on No Quarter.
