Who: Formed in 2012, the experimental band’s anonymous members
claimed to hail from the remote and cursed village of Korpilombo in northern
Sweden, where inhabitants had for centuries been devoted to a form of voodoo
introduced by a traveling witch doctor – there was no one else on earth quite
like them. They have delivered 3 studio albums so far.
New album: HEADSOUP
Info: A globetrotting acid trip of an album, collecting rarities spanning
the band’s career – standalone singles, B-sides and two brand new tracks.
These out-of-this-world voodoo priests remind me of those other weirdos,
Louisiana-based The Residents as both bands wear masks since day 1, and
we have no clue who they really are. But that’s actually the only similarity as
The Residents are a one-eyeball-prog-rock-opera ensemble who is totally
unpredictable but harmless, whereas GOAT is a mind-bewitching psych-o-delic
tribe who put a spell on you and you never know what happens next. Spooky!
Ahead of Headsoup comes new single Queen Of The Underground. A puzzling-electrifying trance groove moving like a vicious snake climbing out of its basket.
King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard will love this to death.
HEADSOUP out 27 August – order info here
