Get into This's Peter Guy chooses his bands to watch at Liverpool Psych Fest

He says this about a couple of Rocket bands:

Josefin Ohrn and the Liberation
Stockholm's Josefin and her Liberation collective are one of a number of Rocket Recordings' artists heading to Psych Fest.

Having produced one of the stand out albums of 2015 with her debut album Horse Dance, she's back with the outrageously fine new epic In Madrid / Rainbow Lollipop. One certainly not to miss.

Gnoomes 
Moscow's Gnoomes specialise in trance-like rock & roll which has the West Coast flair of the Byrds but reimagines their sound through layer upon layer of fuzzy, cyclical grooves.

Could provide one of Psych Fest 2016's best sets.

Italian Rolling Stone interviews Goat


Rough translation:

The mantra of the Goat
A surreal conversation with one of the most mysterious bands around. No one knows who they are, but everyone knows what to do: world music like no other

"I can not tell you my name," was the answer to the first question in this telephone interview, that when it comes to a band usually is: "Hello, who am I speaking?" Well, I talk to the Goat, and, as will be explained below the interviewee, you need not specify the identity. Goat is whole, a group of boys in the far north of Sweden-Korpilombolo, a village that seems to have a history of voodoo communities, which would explain the glaring masks with which they perform-that suddenly found themselves in a room to play.

The result is a world music held together by a psychedelic pasta, heavily indebted to the Jimi Hendrix Experience. The last album Requiem confirms this dual nature, although it is clear that, over time, the thirst for ethnic items to collect a bit 'everywhere is gnawing ground compared to the more classically rock ...

It reads:

Gnoomes
(Friday 23rd September, 1:15am, PZYK Colony in Camp)

Hailing from the city of Perm in the central (European) part of Russia, this energetic trio have been honing their motorik inspired dubgaze for the past couple of years, culminating in the excellent Ngan!, released in August of last year on Rocket Recordings. This marks their first ever visit to UK shores, and if the record is anything to go by, it promises to be a very memorable and momentous occasion.

The Seventh Hex interviews Goat

It reads: 


In a culture obsessed with content, saturation, and continual exposure, it’s rare to find artists who prefer to lurk outside of the public eye. Sweden’s enigmatic Goat may qualify as the greatest modern pop-culture mystery. Who are these masked musicians? Are they truly members of the Arctic community of Korpilombolo? Are their songs part of their isolated communal heritage? Their third studio album, ‘Requiem’, offers more questions than answers and it remains nearly impossible to pinpoint the exact origins of the elusive group’s sound. With ‘Requiem’, Goat continue to rock and writhe to a beat beholden to no nation, no state. Goat simply creates a world where the line between truth and fiction is so obscured that all you can do is bask in their cryptic genius… We talk to band member Fluffan about making music in a collective, mysticism and transcendental meditation…

TSH: How would you say the excellent latest record ‘Requiem’ ties in with the evolution of the band’s progression?

Fluffan: Well by you saying “excellent”, I assume you like the album? So thank you, it means a lot to us. I think the whole album comes from a space and a place where we felt total creational freedom. How ‘Requiem’ ties in with the other albums, I really do not know. I think that it is partly up to the listener to delve into. I rarely think about the music once it’s done and in this case recorded.

TSH: Like previous Goat works, the album offers more questions than answers – do you feel art should raise questions in general?
