Call for remixers for a special blocSonic and Garmisch remix event!

The cover of the self-titled debut album by Garmisch

Before Garmisch came to blocSonic, they released two great EPs with the now defunct netlabel Go, Jukebox!. Those EPs never saw a lossless release and deserve such a treatment, so we’re re-releasing them as part of what’s currently entitled “The Garmisch EP XE”. An Xtended Edition release featuring both EPs, a few extra EP-related goodies and a special remixed version of the self-titled album.

Dungen Live at ATP-NY 2010

Swedish psychedelic rock band Dungen (pronounced "dune-yen", not "Dungeon", as your Stryper-loving stepbrother may refer to them as) performed an awesome set at the Jim Jarmusch curated ATP last month in Monticello, New York.

While the set covered most of the band's discography, it centered around the group's awesome new LP, Skit i allt, which in English humorously translates to "Fuck it all." That title may have been a bit more appropriate for frontman Gustav Ejstes' early days as a hip hop artist, but there's something about it that's perfect for Dungen's music, which to me occasionally sounds like Eureka-era Jim O'Rourke playing with Selling England By The Pound-era Genesis.

Maybe only I hear that combination... but to me that sounds... awesome! Dungen can be a bit proggy, they can be a bit folky, a bit metal, and sometimes it even seems like in any minute Karen Carpenter might come up and grab the microphone from Gustav and start singing a Burt Bacharach-penned number, especially on "Marken Lag Stilla", from the newest album.

"Mina Damer Och Fasaner", from 2008's 4, was a particular highlight from the set, recalling Gentle Giant and Peter Gabriel (in a good way) and has been made available to download via WFMU below, engineered by Ernie Inradat. Unleash your inner prog nerd!

Skapmat

SKÅPMAT is a happy EP of instrumentals from Swedish producer Christian Björklund. It slips from dub beats into delicate minimal electronica effortlessly. Some of the tracks Björklund composed for a video game. All tracks are podsafe and are excellent radio beds.
