New Dungen Album, 4, Out September 30th

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 with cinematic undertones.

Included in this set are live favorite “Mina Damer och Fasaner,” excerpts from a wild psychedelic jam session entitled “Samtidigt”, and a storming, Northern Soul-influenced instrumental entitled “Fredag”. These stand tall with some of the most fully-realized moments of Dungen’s career; percolating prog-pop groover “Det Tar Tid” and eloquent opener “Satt At Se”, the latter of which is being released on a Ltd Edition 12″ on Mexican Summer (and Subliminal Sound in Europe) before 4 comes out this fall.

Watch out for late Fall tour dates.
