Capra Informis make a dense and intense space rock full of weird instrumentation and unpredictable twists. On Womb of the Wild, an extremely limited 12” vinyl for Rocket records, they also embrace some droning organ and queasy synth work. A lovely bit of noisy and repetitive psych rock with choral vocals.

Capra Informis is a new band that means ‘shapeless goat’ in latin, which is a clever name since it was started by the djembi player from Goat (see what they did there?) who still remains nameless for no reason at all. ‘It’s not about me, it’s about the music, but I’m also famous from a famous band so yeah.’ He/she has assembled another group of nameless goons who will in future refer to themselves as ‘the nameless guitar player who worked with the nameless djembi player from the band Goat.’ Psych breeds psych in the womb of the wild.
There are hand drums and there are guitars. Distorted, rawk guitars. There’s a consistent tandem between frantic but repetitive drum cycles and some sort of fire-dancing shamanistic vocal chanting. You know the kind - deep, manly quasi-religious bellowing to invoke all sorts of mystery and acid flashbacks. To fill in the inevitable space between these essential psychedelic elements, the guitars dirge out a single riff or, more frequently, a sustained synth/organ thing keeps it a bit cleaner which really brings out the swathes of vocal and kinda makes it sound medieval. Sort of like the clean bits from folk metal, anyone known Primordial? Anyone?? So there’s actually less guitar than the title track would have you believe, but it’s still a good psych excursion that keeps in line with the Goat ethos.
In fact we’ve all probably lost our minds from all the walls of fuzzy guitars by now.
