My music playlist for today (February 16, 2012 edition)

Today in my recommendations of music from friends found in the “outer reaches” of www.progressiveears.com, I examine Dungen, as recommended by that Canadian trucking logistics expert known as Yves.

Dungen

I love the exposure I get at progressiveears to music of all different nations, and Dungen fits into that category.  It’s a band from Stockholm, Sweden, that’s a combination of a variety of things — ambience, psychedelia, jazz, and folk that all seems to fit together very nicely.

I know that Yves and I have some similar tastes in jazz, so it’s that aspect of Dungen that fits in with me very nicely.  But there’s more to Dungen that makes it worth exploring on a much deeper level.  Their musicianship is top-notch.

I just won’t try translating the words to the songs right now.

About A View From The Middle (Class)

Hi, my name's John. I've thought about this blogging stuff for a number of years now. I got into it for real on November 10, 2011, after suddenly losing my job in late October. I've been blogging ever since, and I kept it up over a period of a year and four months of being unemployed or under-employed, to try and paint a picture of what being jobless with a family to support can be like. Finally, on February 28, 2013, I got a better job that puts us back into the "middle class." I won't stop blogging, though. Who knows, maybe I can actually turn this blogging stuff into a way to earn a living someday! If you go to my blog at http://viewfrommiddleclass.wordpress.com/ and click on my About page, it'll tell you a lot about me -- maybe more than you ever wanted to know. I'm just your average, laid-back guy who's GOING TO MAKE IT IN THIS WORLD, despite all the roadblocks thrown in the way. I also launched a "niche" blog on music at http://thecrossovermusicchannel.blogspot.com/ that I'm very excited about because of the popularity of music playlist articles here. Also, check out and "Like" this blog's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/daddysangbassdude2 for instant updates. Look forward to seeing y'all around!
