Marfa Myths is a festival in Texas curated by the Mexican Summer label. There you will find all you’d expect from a festival in terms of bands playing live and such, but there are also some special events. One of those events is a recording residency. In 2017,  Swedish psych rockers Dungen collaborated with Brooklyn’s alt. folk rockers, Woods. Myths 003 was the resulting LP. Liner notes from members of each band complete the package. LP on Mexican Summer.

8/10 Robin Staff review, 14 March 2018

Who’s idea was this? I don’t know whether I’d like to shake or wring their hand. Carelessly meshing together all and any definitions of psych rock, the Mexican Summer Myths’ festival series collates Swedish jammers Dungen and folksy coo crew Woods into one album of live ventures. A wahing and sun-soaked ascent to the cosmos that also sounds pastoral and terrestrial, it actually sounds exactly like their middle ground.

For your attention is “Turn Around”, a track of oscillating guitar licks straight out of the Dungen songbook that then spirals into choruses of Woodsian falsetto and choruses of  sadly reminiscing harmonies. Dungen and Woods: together at last? Together at last. As if by magic, the unknowable space antics of one make easy living arrangements with the lilting emotive qualities of the other. “Jag Ville Va Kvar”, by the way: this warped pop oddball sees Dungen use the laid-back rhythms and dittying old-skool pop of their psychfellows to create what sounds like a galactical love song.

Truly one of the chillest things you’ll hear this year, it sounds like the two bands strived to keep the impromptu times flowing with low-flying energy -- “Just for the Taste” is sun-soaked jangle at its best, an instrumental of everywhere-twanging guitars that sound like the theme tune for a nap amongst the trees. I feel so relaxed; I shan't work another second.
