Dungen frontman/mastermind Gustav Ejstes has been making music for nearly 20 years. As a teenager in rural Sweden, he became obsessed with hip-hop and sampling. Digging through crates and searching for obscure source material provided him with an informal education in 60’s pop and psychedelia. In 2007, Dungen coalesced into a fully democratic band, with members Reine Fiske, Mattias Gustavsson, and Johan Holmegard helping Ejstes to realize his vision while adding flourishes of their own. As a result, Dungen grew into one of the best and most consistently inventive psych rock bands in the world.
Once and Future Band is an incredibly accomplished cabal of total prog wizards who have circled the earth, but then, these are the accomplished gentlemen of many former pursuits (the formidable Drunk Horse among them), and all of them comets themselves. The very mid 70’s vibe at work here surpasses pastiche, and crests that lovely anachronistic conceptual peak; a fully realized and meticulously arranged psych record, meant to be listened to from top to bottom, with the lights down low and in a comfy chair perhaps, or while gazing out the window of your life pod.
