Goats on the Horizon

Hey, now! It's back to music. And it's Goat!!

"Goatman" from World Music (2012)

Not saying Goat is the only Swedish voodoo-themed psychedelic Afro-Funk band going these days, but that's probably accurate.

"Goathead" from World Music (2012)

Of course, it's new-ish from Rocket Recordings! They who brought us recent Astral favorites Gnod (#3, 2011 and #5, 2010) and Teeth of the Sea (#10, 2010 and #9, 2009).

"The Sun The Moon" from Goatman 7" (2012)

Goat are a collective who hail from a small and very remote village called Korpolombolo in deepest darkest Sweden. Legend has it that for centuries, the inhabitants of the village of Korpolombolo were dedicated to the worship and practices of Voodoo. This strange and seemingly unlikely activity was apparently introduced into the area after a travelling witch doctor and a handful of her disciples were led to Korpolombolo by following a cipher hidden within their most sacred of ancient scriptures. The reason it led them there is unknown, but their Voodoo influence quickly took hold over the whole village and so they made it their home - there, they were able to practice their craft unnoticed and unbothered for several centuries. This was until their non-Christian ways were discovered by the Church and they were burned out by the crusaders, the survivors cursing the village over their shoulders as they fled. To this day, the now picturesque village of Korpolombolo is still haunted by this Voodoo curse; the power of the curse can be felt throughout the grooves of the Goat records.
