3 stars Music from the 2000s sounding like a time machine back to the 1960s. Some early Floyd, Gorky's Zygotic Mynci, Kevin Ayers, Pretty Things, Soft Machine, Syd Barrett, fuzz guitar work a la Harvey Mandel and prog.rock band Landberk. The aforementioned is the kind of fusion Dungen have cooked up. It doesn't sound _retro_ either. In fact, this recording is so convincing it sounds like a re-issue straight out of the '60s. Nothing short of brilliant is the instrumental _Sol Och Regn_. Very sixties and very far-out! Don't expect anything like Reine Fiske's other projects like Landberk, Paatos or Morte Macabre. This music is firmly in the indie-rock mode. People who appreciate bands like Sundial, The Bevis Frond or Sebadoh would appreciate the Dungen creations. As mentioned, the title track _Stadsvandringar_ is very catchy and is a definite mood changer(great beach music!). Vocals are in Swedish. Good place to start with Dungen as they get better with each subsequent release.
Gooner | 3/5 |
