Two More Jack White Produced Singles To Be Released
Celebrated Swedish rock band Dungen recorded their Blue Series single at the Third Man Studios in September. The 4-piece, led by songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Gustav Ejstes, recorded two brand new tracks for the label: a mesmeric psych-pop odyssey "Oga Nasa Mum" (which translates into English as "Eye Nose Mouth") and a haunting instrumental titled "Highway Wolf". Since 2004 Dungen have released a string of critically lauded albums. Their impressive sixth full length Skit i allt (Subliminal Sounds/ Mexican Summer) was released earlier this year.
For their Blue Series release First Aid Kit recorded spine-tingling covers of Buffy Sainte-Marie's "Universal Soldier" (made famous in 1965 by Donovan) and classic blues standard "It Hurts Me Too", a song much loved by fans of Karen Dalton's 1969 folk-blues version. First Aid Kit – comprised of 17 and 20-year old sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg - recorded the tracks in October during their US headlining tour with touring drummer Mattias Bergvist, their father Benkt Söderberg, Jack Lawrence (The Greenhornes/ The Raconteurs) and Joshua Hedley adding additional parts on "It Hurts Me Too". First Aid Kit won international acclaim this year for their stunning debut album The Big Black And The Blue (Wichita Recordings).
