Chances are, you haven't heard of Dungen, and I don't hold it against you. There's enough music happening in North America that keeping tabs on the Swedish music scene seems totally unnecessary. Well, Dungen is here to prove everyone wrong. Think Sigur Ros with catchier melodies, deeper grooves, and more rock. The vocals are in Swedish, but it definitely doesn't matter that you can't understand what they're saying. The music is lush and shimmery, due in large part to the band's impressive instrumentation. Their most recent album, 4, is wonderful summer music. Here's a sample, a song called "Det Tar Tid." Enjoy!
