Dungen - Häxan (Versions by Prins Thomas) (7/10)

Swedish rock band Dungen is best known for putting out excellent progressive and psychedelic rock for several decades. Ace Norwegian producer Prins Thomas has taken some tracks from their latest release and sliced ‘n diced them into some stripped-down sonic exercises, ranging from emphasizing Kraut-rock aspects of the songs, to stately Floyd-like grooves. Indeed, these still can stand shoulder-to-shoulder with many releases from current psych bands. The difference is that the intense trademark keyboard and guitar solos are removed, leaving a more rhythm-based feel. Hey, grab your axe and it’s Dungen karaoke!
