Sweden's Dungen sweetly returned with a collection of gorgeous, dream-like melodies, psychedelic stonkers and graceful, jazz-filled polyrhythms in 2010. In what felt like a very short decade, Sweden's Dungen mutated at a furious pace, and Gustav Ejstes' lone constant has been change. At ease with effervescent pop, third-eye popping psychedelia, heavy rock, spider-web folk and breezy jazz, Dungen's dynamism astounds throughout Skit I Allt. Rather than remain only Ejstes' studio vision, Dungen is a muscular full band here. Guitarist Reine Fiske, bassist Mattias Gustavsson, and drummer Johan Holmegard are fully integrated into Ejstes' vision.
Dungen debuted in 2001 with an eponymous album of long psilocybic tracks and aural tomfoolery. The next year's Stadsvandringar found Ejstes coming to grips with the language of rock before the zeitgeist-grabbing third album, Ta Det Lugt ignited the blogosphere so that it glowed like the aurora borealis. Not content to revel in such accolades, 2007's Tio Bitar flashed the band's pop smarts as well as their incandescent freak-outs while 4 put the band's cohesiveness on display, at once gorgeous and biting. Skit I Allt is the one that gathers everything they've done and learned, bringing it all together into an impressive whole.
