HERMAN DUNE

NEXT YEAR IN ZION

2009-03-11

HERMAN DUNE NEXY YEAR IN ZION After one listen to Herman Dune’s new release “Next Year In Zion” I couldn’t get Jonathan Richmans quirky part in the movie ‘There’s Something About Mary.” Herman Dune is composed of singer/songwriter/guitarist David-Ivar Herman Dune and drummer Neman Herman. This is actually their fifth full release and has earned them a strong European cult following. David’s warm voice, often humorous lyrics are both entertaining and engaging. Several of the tracks also including “Baby You’re My Baby,” and “Try To Think About Me {Don’t You Worry A Bit”} & “My Best Kiss” Include the warmth of a brass section. Though most tracks show David-Ivar Herman’s dry sense of humor, he delivers a serious and powerful environmental warning on {Nothing Left But} Poison In The Rain. Though I predict Herman Dune will remain a cult band I will be one of the first to sign up for their American chapter. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
