That inscrutable Swedish psychs Goat should return with a single entitled Stonegoat seems to make absolute sense. We’ve previously become acquainted with Goatman, Goathead and Goatlord alike, though this rare delicacy from the enigmatic Korpilombolo ensemble could only be more appositely entitled were its sleeve to signal prerequisite directions for maximum enjoyment: roll; kindle; toke ’til smoked. Though that may go some way to intimating toward a languid inertia when in fact, quite antithetically, Stonegoat reeks of a giddy, if ever primordial euphoria that’s at once both conscious and conspicuously active as squiggly guitars shadow elaborate bass lines like smoke emanating off a stupefied West Holts throng. Again aptly, Goat play Glastonbury in but a few short weeks’ time. Hallelujah!
Stonegoat is unleashed alongside Dreambuilding June 3rd via Rocket Recordings.
