Catching Up With Win Dunham of Young Crooks

Since leaving us Kenyon folks for New Orleans, then Austin, Win Dunham has managed to churn out an impressive quantity of music.  In the past year and a half, we have seen a handful of killer singles, a short album (Terror Tablet) that included none of them, and an EP (Gutter-Grade) for those singles to find their rightful place among 4 other songs Win managed to record in the meantime.

But of course, if that didn’t satisfy your Win fix, there’s also purportedly a secret place on the internet awash with Young Crooks b-sides, demos, alternate takes, etc…because clearly the dude does nothing except write music.

We spoke with Win via Facebook chat and got some musings on his latest songs and stories, as well as what tunes he’s been bumping lately.  You can like Young Crooks on Facebook for continued updates on Win’s tunes, and make sure to catch the interview after the jump!

Well, it’s been a good week for Kenyon music!  We’ve seen releases from Tristan Neviska, We Just Spoke, and now from two more power duos: Glen Echo (Alex Martin ’13 & Bennett Davidson ’12) and Andrew Dunham (Andrew Firestone ’14 & Win Dunham ’14).  The former just played a glorious CD release party in Tafts with Poor Remy, and the latter have been staying up late into the night with copious stockpiles of munchies polishing their collab – Firestone admits to not having gone to bed later than 6am once during finalas week.

You can read about, listen to, and freely download both releases after the jump.  Seriously, do it.  I can’t remember the last time so much badass student music surfaced all at once, so be sure to jump on this.
