Dungen at Amoeba

Dungen (pronounced “Doon-yen”) – Live at Amoeba Records in L.A. in March, uploaded to YouTube a few days ago.

A cracking performance, albeit short.  Two songs from Haxan (an album I reviewed for Spectrum Culture), which was a soundtrack to the 1926 animated film The Adventures of Prince Achmed, and closing with the magnificent “En Gang Om Aret” (which loosely translates to “once a year”) starting at 9:27, originally on 2015’s Allas Sak.

Nobody does psych/folk/prog rock better, in my opinion. Floppy muppet hair and all.

    This band is new to me. If nobody does psych/folk/prog rock better I think I need to check them out.

    Their “hit” was “Panda” from a few years ago, but they’ve done a wide variety of things in their career. First album from 2001 (self titled) goes all over the place musically in a fascinating way: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFSeUjzkmb8
