Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun

Our friends at Sneak Attack Media have once again offered another excellent prize to give away to readers. This time it is a copy of the record 4 by the Swedish psychadelic rock band Dungen – on vinyl.

This record, which was released in the fall, has gotten excellent reviews, including a rave from Pitchfork, who said:

The resulting lineup has come up with a tighter, more focused, and more compact record than Tio Bitar (10 songs, 38 minutes, no songs over five minutes) that still finds a way to touch on all of Dungen's sonic tendencies in lively, unpredictable fashion. Moments of mournfully wailing acid-rock beauty (the violin-tinged opener "Sätt Att Se") give way to gentler strains of classically influenced pop ("Målerås Finest"). The loose-fingered, high-speed freakout of "Samtidigt 1" is joined in progress right after the fluttering pastoralism of "Det Tar Tid"; its partner "Samtidigt 2"– culled from the same full-band jam sessionsoars into some kind of Deadhead exosphere only to dissipate into the soft piano/chime/flute melodies of "Bandhagen" (and its not-so-soft drumbeatlike every other Dungen record, 4 is a percussive monster).

To enter, send an e-mail with "Dungen" in the subject line and your mailing address in the body to [email protected] by midnight on Sunday, December 21. Winners will be notified by e-mail shortly thereafter.

In the meantime, enjoy this video from the song "Fredag" (or "Friday"):
