Although they tour as a full band, the music produced by Dungen is the work
of one man -- the young Gustav Ejstes. In 2005, the label Subliminal Sounds
heard Ejstes' remarkably powerful, melodic take on hard psychedelia and
gave his meticulously composed debut album, Ta Det Lungt, a small round of distribution on the American shores. The result was a huge wave of press, completely oversold club shows, and major label interest -- all for an act that prides itself on conjuring up the days of gatefold album sleeves and incense with their riff-heavy rock and idyllic folk interludes. Let us pray that bare feet and afros aren't far behind.
