"4, the newest release by Swedish psychedelic rockers, Dungen (or "the groove" in Swedish) is a bit ethereal at times, like a soundtrack to some sappy love movie with strings and various percussion instruments, but when the guitar takes the lead...it just KILLS! The swirling guitar moments are pure 70's arena/prog rock brilliance. The ten tracks on 4, with vocals all in Swedish, is Dungen's most distilled group effort yet. The new album foreshadows an evolution of the band where quirky pop portraits are interwoven with atmospheric changes and ripping stunt guitar."
Erik Smolin



"The album sheds the band in a completely different light. They step out of the smoke and haze of their old compositions and show off the individual parts. Throughout 4, Dungen prove themselves to be a great band, and great songwriters, not just great noise-smiths. Ejstesís vocals stay clean through most of the record, and actually sound warmer without the reverb. The spaces in these songs, where the hazy fuzz used to be, invites the listeners in more, making the record more intimate than its predecessors. Itís nice to see a muscled band like Dungen turning toward craft and away from volume. It started with the more understated sound of Tio Bitar, but with the downright catchy songs on 4, the band looks to have reached the height of its powers. Either that, or theyíve just arrived at this new sound and are just getting started. If thatís the case (and knowing the bandís huge talent it could be) then watch out. Because now that Dungen have reigned their sound in a little, they have really cut loose."

Matthew Fiander



"For nigh on nine years Dungen have been creating some of the most groundbreaking and underground music around. 4 sees them far surpassing anything theyíve done before. The ten tracks making up the album are not so much tracks, but more movements, each flowing seamlessly into the next, yet each one still retaining its own atmosphere. 4 sees Dungen mark out two very different music personalities, on one hand the raw, psych-garage stoner riffs, complete with Hendrix guitar yelps and Sabbath fuzz and with the switch of a Big Muff the band suddenly enter Ď70s B-movie soundtrack territory; - jazz fusion progressions, calypso flutes and dramatic time-signature changes."

Clive Drew

Skit I Allt (CD) (Import)

Label: Subliminal Sounds   Origin: Sweden
In case you were wondering, the album's Swedish title translates to "Fuck All," but don't let that lead you into thinking Skit I Allt is some abrasive, in-your-face piece of sonic misanthropy. This is Dungen we're talking about after all, and no matter how hard and heavy their music may get at times, these psychedelic Swedes still like to drift and dream atop clouds of trippy tones too. And while some of the previous Dungen albums have been group efforts in name only,...

Dungen
Tio Bitar (CD)

Label: Kemado   Origin: USA
While Dungen is an incredible live band, it might be more accurately described as the solo project of Gustav Ejstes. Ejstes plays most of the instruments on Dungen's albums--which include flute, sitar, organ, fiddle--with band members sometimes sitting in on guitar, bass and drums. Dungen's singer is a serious student of Swedish folk, but his guiding light for Dungen is the acid rock of Jimi Hendrix and Cream. Dungen's music has matured into an ultra-sophisticated take...
