Dungen - Loop

I really enjoyed Dungen’s 2017 release, Häxan and was excited to see a new song released by this group of Swedish rockers, who do a lot of ambient / jazzy / psychedelic rock songs. This is a cut from their upcoming release (I assume!), which will be out later this year on Mexican Summer records and will be called Myths 003. Here’s Loop:

And as an added bonus, here's my favorite cut from Häxan, called Achmed och Peri Banu. According to this articleHäxan is Swedish for "the witch" and Achmed and Peri Banu are characters in the oldest full length animated film, The Adventures of Prince Achmed, which they were asked to score. It's all pretty wonderful.

Goat Girl - The Man

If you know me at at all, you know I like me some jangly guitars and heavy beats, all fronted by a hard playing woman, like say The Dollyrots or The Courtneys. So of course, I simply adore this song by Goat Girl, a London-based band who’s first full album isn’t due out until later this year. Well, that one certainly jumps to the top of my “Must Listen” list, now doesn’t it!
