          I know, i looked through some other popular mixes of his. The point i was trying to make is that it made me chuckle, it can be hard to come off as sincere when calling someone else's work comedic. I don´t know this artist, perhaps it is meant to be comedy, if not, i don´t want to offend anybody by laughing. It happens for me irl to, i see comedy in some pretty weird stuff occasionally, and i have gotten a lot of weird faces, i am just trying to be careful.

    Stereolab - Dots And Loops
    A friend has introduced me to Stereolab, it is quite the musical trip!

    Ratboys - "AOID" and their "Live on Audiotree" session.
    Fantastic rock sounds

    The Marias - Superclean Vol. 1 and 2

    Deep Sea Diver - New Caves EP
    This was the first I heard of them years ago, they have released a couple albums since, but their EP is still my favorite.

    Cherry Glazerr - Apocolipstick and Stuffed & Ready
    Not sure how I've missed Cherry Glazerr, but this band rocks

    CHVRCHES - Love is Dead
    Great motorcycling music, don't know why.

    Phantastic Ferniture - Phantastic Ferniture
    Can't stop listening to this album, been in the rotation for a few months now.

      Sasami Ashworth, a former (?) member of Cherry Glazerr, just put out an awesome new self-titled record. Highly recommended!

    A Change is Gonna Come, covered by Brian Owens and Thomas Owens. I hadn't heard this version before and I really like it.

    Hey it's weystrom, your friendly tildian stoner.
    See my post from last week
    Earthless - Uluru Rock - one of my favourite tracks ever, feels like a stream of consciousness dumped into 15 minutes of sick riffs.

    All Them Witches - Diamond - pretty tight stoner rock, builds atmosphere, resolves into this sludgy guitar theme.

    Naxatras - Machine - really groovy psych, enjoy!

          You have a lot of great music in front of you. All of their albums are worth listening to imho.

          If you end up enjoying their sound and want to dig deeper within the Swedish psychedelic rock scene, stuff that quite clearly inspired Dungens sound(my own opinion) is Bo hansson(real name), his album called Sagan Om Ringen from 1970 is legendary. The title is translated to "Lord Of The Rings" and is inspired by the books.

          I also recommend Träd Gräs Och Stenar, translated to "Trees Grass And Rocks". A new song by them i can recommend is Hymn. And if you want to go back in time all the way to 1969 All Along The Watchtower is worth a listen.

          Dungen is hard to translate into English, easier described as "a lush and naturally grown part of the forest, often a bit overgrown i suppose". You can see the resemblance.

    I am starting to dig my way through the 24 jazz and blues records I bought at the WFMU Record Fair last weekend. Photos and descriptions are here, if anybody is interested.

      For me half the fun of crate digging is the record covers. In some of the rural parts of Sweden "Dansband" music is a pretty big thing, even to this day within the older generation still alive. You can find some absolutely hilarious covers. Other then the occasional cool ones.

      My friend used to sample a lot of old LP´s and we had so much fun digging sometimes.

    Psychopomp by Thank You Scientist. This is my first foray into any kind of music like this and I'm digging the everloving shit out of it. Blue Automatic, Need More Input, and Mr. Invisible are amazing, too.

    A good bit of Billy Talent, too. Worker Bees, Where Is The Line, and Covered In Cowardice are great fun.

    The album was released just yesterday, but I've listened to Father of the Bride by Vampire Weekend. My favourite songs in it are probably Sympathy and Jerusalem, New York, Berlin.

      If you're into Dorothy Ashby you might also enjoy Brandee Younger, an up and coming jazz harpist in New York. Some of her stuff is jazz in the style of Ashby or Alice Coltrane, and some is more funk and hip-hop influenced.

        oh yeah, this is right up my alley. thanks! Her collaborations made me find some new pathways as well, this album for starters. Seems like an unofficial band? Either way, interesting album for sure.

        edit: Funny how that album you linked has a song called Afro Harping. Perhaps named in honor of Dorothy´s album from 1968 named the same.

          It's a cover of the title track from Dorothy Ashby's album with a very different rhythm section accompaniment. Same melody though.

    My daughter has been singing Always Remember Us This Way a lot, so that's been the thing I've listened to most. It is everything I hated when I was a young man - it's a trite, unimaginative, predictable, four-chord song - but I've loosened up a lot and see the appeal. It's got a great hook, and Lady Gaga can sing and I've been enjoying it.

    Otherwise, my old standards have been mostly in the rounds, and I've been listening to a lot of Tool to prepare for hopefully hearing a new album this year.

    Lately, I really like the music from the documentary Our Planet on Netflix. It's nice. I had been listening to the OST from Planet Earth 2 and Blue Planet 2 on repeat for the past 3 years.
