Among the many genres of music I follow, there’s a special place in my heart for post-psychedelic music.
Last year, I first heard Dungen’s Sa Blev Det Bestamt with it’s surprising nod to Turkish psychedelic rock but I hadn’t paid much attention to the rest of the album. Lately, I’ve been giving the album a second listen and I’ve been blown away by some of the songs, in particular Familj (above). It’s the keyboard/organ on this track that’s pulled me in, plus it kinda reminds me of another favorite group, Can (see below). I know everyone thought Caribou’s foray into psychedelia, Andorra was the 2007 record of the year but now I’m liking Dungen’s Tio Bitar much more.

And for the fun of it, I just found this on youtube, one of my all-time favorite songs ever!

Oh Yeah-Can

    NICE choices! I love Dungen, actually (and Can, of course) – my favorite record by him is actually “Stadsvandringar.”

    Have you ever heard the Can song “Turtles Have Short Legs”? That’s been my fave Can song of late…you might like it! Here’s a spot where you can hear it:

    I like that Can song as well, especially how you have to wait for the volume to build on the drums, And thanks for linking the turtles song JW, I hadn’t heard that one before, but I found me a copy on Soulseek. ;)

    Thanks for the comments!
    I’ll look for the Stasvandrigar album. And no, I don’t think I’ve heard the Turtles song. I’ll ask El Chavo for a copy! :)
    By the way, I’d love to hire that juggler in the CAN video. Those kinda performers are so old school.
