Goat, a collective of musicians from the darkest corner of the Swedish netherworld, might very well be the most mysterious and electrifying band on the planet at the moment. until earlier this year, noone outside of their remote village had ever heard of them. they have never played a live show outside of their commune. their hometown of Korpolombolo was, according to legend, a hotbed of voodoo worship for centuries after a traveling priestess and her followers were led there by a cipher hidden in their ancient texts. the practice went on for hundreds of years until the Christian church found out what was going on and the village was burned to the ground, the survivors cursing the land as they fled, a curse which still haunts the area to this day. the band members claim that, when they were very young, the village elders initiated them into the entrancing, percussion-heavy musical traditions of their ancestors and that Goat is merely a continuation of a generations old ritual. maybe their backstory is a work of fiction, or maybe it's true. all i know is that if in fact there is a centuries-old voodoo curse coursing through the veins of the music of Goat, i wouldn't be the least bit surprised. there is something almost otherworldly about the music on their debut album "World Music," that much is certain.

the album sounds like a dusty relic from the past, and is shocking in it's scope and execution.

Out of nowhere comes GOAT. We can't say exactly who or what they are, but none of that makes a difference once you hear their music. This stuff is just so much fun to blast, so catchy, and so wonderfully weird at times. They sound psychedelic, worldly, tribal, while rocking out the entire time. Extremely charming. Get a little high and have some fun.

Goat's World Music is exciting! Although the band originates in Sweden, the music does not sound like it was crafted in chilly northern climes but borne in the bowels of a humid tropical jungle or the sweaty subterranean passages of a remote mountain temple. It is intensely TRIBAL. This is music for the body, a rhythm-based cycle for ancient rituals danced beside bonfires deep in the forest or by the sides of rivers under the light of the full moon.

The title of the album is befitting for the diversity of styles contained within:
a continuous piece of music in which all of the tracks flow together into an orgiastic melting pot of experimental psychedelia (like the jam sessions of Can's Tago Mago), an earthy, funky triumvirate of Sly & the Family Stone, Funkadelic, and Fela Kuti (soulful vocals, jazzy horn section, gritty guitar licks, African percussion), and droning, Far Eastern mysticism, which creates an apocalyptic atmosphere.

The two female singers shout urban paeans to the disco, chant pastoral hymns to mother earth and, as their namesake, occult invocations to the return of the Goatlord.

Pagan soundtrack for the 21st century!

Debut? release from band out of northern Sweden (allegedly from a village cursed by its early
Voodoo-worshipping inhabitants when the Christians drove them away). Like the title says, it's
"World Music". What it doesn't tell you is that it's psychedelic world music. Hard, hallucinogenic
guitar leads and driving tribal/ethnic percussion combine to create a unique musical hybrid that
integrates African rhythms, Middle Eastern influences, hints of Krautrock and 70s soul music.
As someone who loves most all things "psychedelic" and has a dubious relationship to "world
music" in general, I'm not really sure what to make of this. But I keep going back to it, and it's an
undeniably strange, rockin' trip with a sweaty, primal energy that makes you want to move.
Like a combination of Voice of the Seven Thunders, Santana, Moon Duo/Wooden Shjips, War,
Amon Duul II, Fela Kuti, Popol Vuh, Can. Pretty cool.

Goats's World Music is an absolute stunner. The music is fresh, electrifying, mind boggling great. This is psychedelic world music that is much greater than the sum of its many musical parts.I really have no idea who these artists are but they make phenomenal music. Five stars.

I gave this album 5 stars (and I'm only reviewing 5 stars top cualty new stuff) and I'll tell you why. When I first listened to this I thought it was simply fresh and very original (specially in this case from a band coming out of the dark forests of Sweden)(and I can expect this from Africans but not by Europeans). Ok now, here the "music" is FIRST. Rampant rocking guitar melodies that will make you feel like a hippy from Woodstock, not like some stupid stoned nude dude but like a smart malicious-music like devil, for you will be haunted with voodoo ambient chants that the singers propells. Another excellent quality about World Music is the flow of the percussions, drums, timbals and tambores going along the brutal pounding yet sophisticaded sound of the bass witch makes it even more interesting. Overall Goat's WM is an exiting thrill to listen to, very very fun.
