dungen-tio%20bitar.jpgSweden's Dungen is one-man recording project whose 2004 release, Ta Det Lungt, felt more like a 70s time-capsule than a modern release. Tio Bitar continues in this vein, mixing psych-rock power with folk melodicism. Unlike the live band's jammy shows, the disc displays more of an affinity for mellow romps and well-written songs. All the same, it's no snoozer, with fierce drumming a constant source of kinetic energy. Dungen just seem to be aware that endless guitar solos are more fun live than on album.
