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 track under 3 minute track climaxes with some seriously heavy fuzz that consumes the whole track.
The ‘AA’ side see’s 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”.
A fantastic slice across the varied landscape of what Rocket do best, all packaged on two beautiful, heavyweight slabs of very pretty vinyl. Outstanding quality both musically and in the physical package too. This is part of why this label is awesome. Ed Sprake
