Skit I Allt Instrumental
Deluxe 5x7" single box set with instrumental versions of all the tracks from Dungen's sixth studio album, Skit I Allt. Some mixes are also in mono. Strictly-limited edition of 500 copies worldwide only. Also contains an inlay card. Sweden's Dungen sweetly return with a collection of gorgeous, dream-like melodies, psychedelic stonkers and graceful, jazz-filled polyrhythms. For main man/producer/arranger/singer Gustav Ejstes, Skit I Allt means "Don't give a shit, forget about it, just go ahead and do it. A friend said: 'Skit I Allt; fuck it, do as you want, time is passing and it's changing, forget fears and hang-ups, we are small and everything is pretty insignificant on the whole. How will it be? What shall we do? We often worry so much unnecessarily. Skit i allt, it's happening now.'" In what feels like a very short decade, Sweden's Dungen has 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, now. Guitarist Reine Fiske, bassist Mattias Gustavsson, and drummer Johan Holmegard are fully integrated into Ejstes' vision of Dungen. 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 (SUBL 017LP) ignited the blogosphere so that it glowed like the aurora borealis. Not content to revel in such accolades, Tio Bitar (SUBL 019LP) flashed the band's pop smarts as well as their incandescent freak-outs while 4 (SUBL 030LP) put the band's cohesiveness on display, at once gorgeous and biting. This album is the one that gathers everything they've done and learned, bringing it all together into an impressive whole.
