Goat “It’s Time for Fun”

The latest from Sweden’s sexy and mysterious psych rock group is a little bit Motortik crossed with the meditative, alternate world version of Fateh Ali Khan.

Record of the Month Club – January 2014

The Fraternal Auditory Illumination Society convened for what would be our inaugural coterie in January at Maier’s Laier. We toasted frosted brews and played many tunes.

Brother Muu brought two tasty growlers from local hops specialists, Societe Brewery.

On glass that night was Harlot and another, mystery brew.

Brother Dan offered his audiophile rig (Music Hall mmf 7, Outlaw RR2150 and Ascend Acoustics Sierra 1s) and it sounded in-crediballs!

We recorded audio for a potential future Podcast but need to work through some kinks before we unleash it on an unsuspecting public who probably don’t want another (or care for) podcast about music from music nerds.

(Spitballing in the digital void here) It’d be pretty rad to do something similar at the Whistle Stop once a month and have it curated by folks like JP, Tim Mays, M Theory, Off the Record, folks from Casbah, Soda Bar and Tin Can. It’d be like a Vinyl Social.

The only rule would be “vinyl only.”

No genre limitations. The more eclectic the better.

I gave Brother Dan the download from my vinyl edition of Women’s Public Strain.

Happy to report he loves it nearly as much as I do.

Goat “Diarabi (Boubacar Traore cover) + Golden Dawn” – LIVE @ Roadburn, Tilburg 2013

Somehow, for some unknown reason, GOAT’s Live Ballroom Ritual 2013 passed right by me, in the dead of a year filled with the weight of bits and bytes of useless crap.

Yes, I missed out on purchasing the green  splatter vinyl, which is now being sold on fucking eBay for 90 bucks.

They toured but skipped the West Coast (at least that is what I’m telling myself).

But they did play Roadburn and some enterprising young documentarian captured this amazing performance.

Fall 2012 Mixtape – Prolapsed Apocalypse Sounds

Image

 

At night, secreted away under a freeway overpass,

You listen to the sound of the passing tire treads, hoping, at some future juncture,

A symphony composed of broken geometry will ignite your light.

Finally, freeing you.

Goat – Goathead – Tape Deck Rock

Here’s some trippy psych-swede shit for the Ayhuasca/DMT set. Makes Tame Impala’s brand of anthropology psych rock look even tamer by sonic comparison. I think I may have to dust off the old cassette player in the garage just so I can properly soundtrack my journey to the astral plane. This is a band clearly raised on an effective government health care system and repeated viewings of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Holy Mountain.
 
Their new record “World Music” will be released via the pineal gland of Rocket Recordings in August 2012.
