Biography

Dungen's fourth studio album extends the acclaimed Swedish outfit's sound past psychedelia into something far more rare. Moving beyond mere stylistic concerns, 4 finds Gustav Ejstes' focus on the extremes of Dungen's sound separating into two entities. Blazing, raw guitar workouts have their own time and place, but now, so do stirringly orchestrated, jazz-cooled compositions ... Read more in Amazon's Dungen Store

Editorial Reviews

Rising from relative obscurity this past year, the story of Gustav Estjes and his Swedish psych-rock outfit has mushroomed in 2005 with the re-release of their album "Ta Det Lugnt" prompting their rise to buzz-band status and garnering wide critical and commercial acclaim. Now in the wake of the band's most extensive US tour ever, Astralwerks is pleased to offer the first ever US release of the band's acomplished 2002 album "Stadsvandringar" (City Walks), the first time the album has been released outside of Sweden.

5.0 out of 5 stars Through the Stadsvandringar July 26, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Dungen's third album "Ta Det Lugnt" became an underground hit as soon as people heard the sparkling, weird psych-folk pop. People like Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips were singing Gustav Ejstes' praises.

So his second album got rushed into US stores to help meet the demand -- "Stadsvandringar," another collection of bright, unique psych-folk that is nearly as good as the latest work. This brilliant little album proves that "Ta Det Lugnt" was definitely no fluke -- it was just sheer talent.

It's a little surprising when you first hear the opening title track, which sounds kind of... country-western. Fortunately by the time Ejstes starts crooning, the song has evened out into a steady, swirling little psych-pop song. It gets echoed abruptly in the middle of the album, in the a capella "Stadsvandring Del 2."

Estjes spends the rest of the album dabbling in all sorts of different styles, sometimes with more than one style per song. There's strummy folk with tambourines, a shimmering folk-prog song, delicate psychedelica, upbeat epics, sparkly little folk tunes, an ethereal instrumental with birds chirping in the background, and what sounds like dance music for hobbits in "Stock och sten."

Dungen is the sort of band that deserves its cult following -- not only does it make interesting music, but music that is delicious, complex and still very fun and catchy. A few songs on here don't quite fit -- "Vem vaktar lejonen?" is a bit too dark and rock-y -- but the overall effect is that of wild, colourful, childlike beauty.

And one of the best things about Dungen is the instrumentation. There's loads of it -- more acoustic guitar than fuzz, and kept relatively simple musically.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 and 1/2 stars. August 6, 2007
Format:Audio CD
i hate people with talent. they make me realize what a worm i am. listening to this disc was sickening. there's talent talent and more talent all over the thing. talent and creative genius. by the time that i was done with it i was brimming with self-hatred. great stuff, though. there's no denying that.
