"Let's meditate, Let's celebrate!" schreeuwen deze gekke Zwitsers van de bergtoppen, want ja, het mag ook bij hen weer en dus laten ze graag deze psychedelische, hypnotiserende trip op de wereld los. Met een nieuw album onder de arm gaan ze trouwens binnenkort de hort op en bezoeken ze ook BE en NL. Zie hieronder voor de data.

DIRTY SOUND MAGNET is a psychedelic rock power trio from Fribourg, Switzerland. Their sound oozes the amazing effervescent 60s/70s rock. The band's approach has often been compared to Led Zeppelin for their groove, energy and instrumental virtuosity, to a more violent version of Pink Floyd and to the mysticism of The Doors. With the addition of some more modern influences (Tame Impala, King Gizzard and the Lizzard Wizard) and sarcastic lyrics grounded in today's social turmoil, the DSM magic formula is complete.


In 2017, DSM issued their debut album 'Western Lies' with Berlin-based record label Noisolution. Shortly after, the band won the “Best Swiss Rock Song” award for their single "Homo Economicus". They started to tour relentlessly, playing more than 350 shows around Europe.


2019 saw the release of their epic full album 'Transgenic', which established the band as a leading force among the European psychedelic rock scene. When Covid-19 arrived, freezing any cultural life for a while, Dirty Sound Magnet had to cancel their tour. This hiatus from touring allowed the band to go back to basics and rehearse intensively. They produced and released a live session album named 'Live Alert' in November 2020 via Hummus Records. The album showcases the trio’s unquestionable improvisation skills and obvious mastery.


During this highly productive period, Dirty Sound Magnet also recorded an ambitious studio album. "DSM-III" is arriving on March 18th 2022 through Swiss independent record label Hummus Records (Coilguns, Impure Wilhelmina).
