So as we've acknowledged that any number of this week's releases could be our record of the week, month or even year... how do we pick the record of the week? Easy, follow your guts and go with the Swedish psychedelic jazz.... Dungen are one of our most favourite bands and their new LP Allas Sak finds them in fine form, doing all of the things they do well, really well. It's been five years since, at the height of their powers, they took a step back and went on a break. Allas Sak picks up where Dungen’s previous album left off, but somehow it sounds bolder and livelier, feistier and more focused. The guitars, flutes and synths wind in and out of focus through walls of haze, fuzz and vibes. Love these guys, love this album already. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
