Long considered a Dungen side project due to the involvement of guitarist Reine Fiske, The Amazing deserve to be discovered on their own. Now that they’re signed to the Brooklyn label Partisan Records, that’s gotten a little easier, especially considering how strong the lead single from their latest album (Picture You, February 17) is. Split into two distinct parts, the nine-and-a-half-minute “Picture You” segues from a autumnal stretch that could pass for a Real Estate song to an instrumental section that fades off into the sunset quite nicely. Not a bad way to set the weekend off at all.
