9/10 according to on Wed 05 Jun, 2013

Oh, hello! I’m sure Goat need no introduction by now since the blogs and broadsheets alike are in thrall to their unique blend of classic psych rock and African rhythms, bursting onto the scene fully-formed with killer LP ‘World Music’ last year. After a select handful of ritualistic shows which saw the band performing in golden masks in a breathless voodoo carnival which really has to be seen to be believed, they’re back with another single on Rocket Recordings with two brand new tracks, ‘Stonegoat’ and ‘Dreambuilding’.

It’s pretty much business as usual here, with the recordings perhaps not quite as good as the debut LP but the songs easily shining through with the usual bold melodies, clever and danceable rhythms, simple fuzzy basslines and hollered dual vocals all present and correct. Side A’s got a great wibbly guitar solo at the end over a persistent tropical shuffle, and the slightly slower B side sees them flip into some brilliantly hypnotic Funkadelic-meets-Afrobeat jamming towards the end with some brazen super-saturated guitar topping off the mix nicely. To be honest I’d like to see them make some deeper and longer excursions into this jammier territory, and I’m hoping this single is a primer for a second album which does just that, but for now let’s just enjoy a band on a golden streak kicking out some casually grooving and totally unique rock music like they were born to do it.

Press release

Goat became one of the most talked about bands in 2012 due to the success of their extraordinary debut album World Music. So we at Rocket are extremely excited to announce this double ‘A’ side single, the first release of new music from the band. Goat hail from the historical but little known about Northern Swedish village of Korpolombolo , where these two new tracks were written and recorded. And like many of the tracks off World Music, the resonance of the villages voodoo past can be heard throughout these grooves.

The ‘A’ side entitled Stonegoat continues right where World Music left off with fuzzy wah guitars, relentless djembi rhythms and banshee screams. The under three minute track climaxes with some seriously heavy fuzz that consumes the whole song. The ‘AA’ side sees Goat broaden their palette with the track Dreambuilding. On the surface it is business as usual, infectious tribal grooves, fuzz and dual vocals. But after a couple of listens the true beauty of the tracks deep funk groove is released and reveals an even more structured side to Goat’s loose way of making amazing music. We are also extremely proud to announce that one of our favourite artists Luke Insect is responsible for creating the eye melting illustration that houses this great 7”.
