Artist: DUNGEN
Title: 4
Format: LP
Label: Subliminal Sounds
Country: Sweden
Price: $27.00
2016 re-press. "This is the clear-vinyl Swedish edition of Dungens fourth studio album (released on CD in the U.S. via Kemado; no longer in print on vinyl from Kemado however), extending the acclaimed Swedish outfits sound past psychedelia into something far more rare. Moving beyond mere stylistic concerns, 4 finds Gustav Ejstes focus on the extremes of Dungens 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. Bandleader Gustav Ejstes has made many allusions to his creative process as it likens to that of a hip-hop producer. On 4, that process is more evident than ever, both in the feel of each piece, and in the sense of intuition and control within the members of the group. New drummer Johan Holmegard joins guitarist Reine Fiske and bassist Mattias Gustavsson, while Ejstes steps away from guitar for the entire album, focusing on the piano as his lead instrument. Together, they have honed a classic and seamless sound, constructed with lavish studio flourishes and moving, narrative arrangements, and yet able to toughen up to tear veins of fierce blues-psych instrumentals up from the surface. The ten tracks on 4 comprise Dungens most concentrated effort to date, beats surging forth and atmospheres changing as their sound continues to evolve. Every song here runs under five minutes, pushing the group to introduce confident melodies and arresting ambiance in tighter frameworks. Gauging from the results, this challenge has done them well. 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 Dungens career; percolating prog-pop groover "Det Tar Tid" and eloquent opener "Satt At Se." With a penchant for lush pop portraits, and laced with orange sunshine guitar flash, 4 turns a page in Dungens sound and story." - Subliminal Sounds.

Title: Ta Det Lugnt
Format: Triple LP Box
Label: Subliminal Sounds
Country: Sweden
Price: $74.00
"2015 repress. Subliminal Sounds finally presents the complete legendary Ta Det Lugnt album as a limited deluxe box-set with 2 LPs, a bonus 12" EP Tyst Minut and a full-sized poster. The album is presented here for the first time with the correct vinyl mastering. The original, and previously only available 2004 vinyl LP pressing, was incorrectly manufactured from digital master instead of analog, had several defects and didnt sound at all as intended. We have now gone back to the original vinyl master and made a correct and superior vinyl pressing so you can hear the analog sound as originally intended. The most astounding 2004 breakthrough album from Swedens Dungen; a modern classic psychedelic album. The title translates roughly into English as "Take It Easy" which kind of perfectly sums up Dungens sound. Its immediate and you want to get involved, but theres also such a laid-back, hippy vibe to the whole thing. Ta Det Lugnt is a beautiful musical trip out into the Swedish forests and back again." - Subliminal Sounds.
