duneSo when I first hear Herman Dune I was like ‘WTF is up with this Paul Simon, Van Morrison Brown Eyed Girl rediculousness?’ however upon further listens it would appear that they’re much more Lou Barlow via Sufjan Stevens – all tooting trumpets and twee recorders. They’ve been around for ages and have released tonnes of music but they have a new album out on 15th Oct called ‘Giant’.

Herman Dune – I Wish That I Could See You Soon

Herman Dune – Suburbs With You (John Peel Session)

And some covers from their website

Herman Dune – Iko Iko (James Sugar Boy Crawford Cover – The_Dixie_Cups_Version)

Herman Dune – Be My Baby (The Ronnettes Cover)

Cop some more covers from their website here (there’s a Silver Jews cover, a Carole King and others), buy some of their CDs here and check Dom Passantino’s review of a previous album on Stylus Magazine here
