First, you emulate, then you make your own original work. That’s how Dungen frontman Gustav Ejstes came to making his own music after sampling ‘60s pop and psychedelia records when he was a teenager.

In 2007, he organized a full band to produce the album Tio Bitar followed by 2009’s 4, 2010’s Skit I All, before going on a five-year hiatus to make Alias Sak in 2015. Their latest record entitled Häxan drops this November. But you can download the atmospheric track ‘Jakten genom skogen’ now on Bandcamp.

Mood Tattooed – Outsider

‘Outsider’ is the lead single from singer/producer Mood Tattooed AKA Hagan Knauth which drops this October on the Brooklyn-based Blankstairs label.

Knauth’s rustic influences are apparent on the track — he grew up on a farm in upstate New York. ‘Outsider’ sounds like the singer’s internal dialogue while taking a solitary walk in the woods. It’s the perfect downtempo song to kick off the beginning of Fall. Upon first listen, it sounds a lot like Elliot Smith’s ‘Need in the Hay‘ but much trippier.

‘Hush Tarantula’ is a dialogue of textures that guides you through a cycle of growth and reflection. Marked by powerful subtleties, Hagan Knauth generates an incredible range of sound that speaks more to the nature of psychedelia than the typical sonic palette commonly found within “psychedelic” music.

Pre-order the album Hush Tarantula on Bandcamp.
