Dunger, a Swedish ex-footballer, crept onto the radar a couple of years ago when he toured with an admiring Mercury Rev and released the heady Soul Rush, an unusually fruitful grapple with the legacies of Van Morrison and Tim Buckley. Those influences are still apparent in Dunger’s throaty and supple vocals. On his excellent third album, however, the music is stripped back to a kind of easy-going, rumbustious folk blues, fitting given the notable participation of Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy. Maybe this time Sweden’s current rock’n’roll cachet will bring Dunger (whose debut featured Soundtrack Of Our Lives) closer to the acclaim he deserves.
