Dungen:: Tio Bitar (Album Review)

2004’s Ta Det Lugnt introduced the wider world to the anachronistic realm of Gustav Ejstes and his comrades – a combo for which music beyond 1972 is irrelevantly futuristic. Still enmeshed in post-Summer Of Love acid rock, Dungen’s latest ticks all the right antediluvian boxes (why play a straight 4/4 beat when there are tom-toms to be roundly assaulted à la Keith Moon?) with Reine Fiske’s guitar flights effectively channelling Hendrix, the hard rocking sporadically abating for lovely oases of Mellotron and strings. The influences may be antediluvian but the spirit is timeless.
