Everyone’s favorite Swedish psych band, Dungen, made it to town recently for a couple shows opening for Tame Impala in Prospect Park, plus a headlining set at the Bowery Ballroom. It had been a while since I’d seen the band live—that was ATP Festival (R.I.P.) 2010—and their Bowery gig found them at the top of their game. Besides drawing from your favorite Dungen records, including Ta Det Lugnt, 4, Skit I Allt, and last year’s Allas Sak (many of which have recently been reissued by Mexican Summer by the way), the band broke out a new song “Häxan,” which has been the talk of their recent tours. The band promised that they’ve approved the test pressing of their followup to Allas Sak and I know at least a few fans are frothing at the mouth for a studio version of this one. The band wraps up their U.S. tour tonight in Philadelphia, but hopefully with a new album on the way we won’t have to wait very long for their next tour.

I recorded this set from our usual location at The Bowery Ballroom with a board feed from FOH Kenny. The sound, as usual, is excellent. Enjoy!

    Your timing with the Full Moon Summer Solstice is perfect. Thank you, not least for the tip-off about another new Dungen album on the way.
