In October last year, Swedish collective Goat surprised the world with the release of an unexpected new album – the twisted psychedelic funk of ‘Oh Death’.
Rave reviews and radio airplay followed, but it wasn’t only the journalists who got hot under the collar with Goats return. As soon as the album hit the airwaves, we received several requests from trusted friends of Rocket to ask if they could create a remix of one of ‘Oh Death’s’ tracks.
So what we have here, is a five track EP called ‘Seu Sangue’ that is being released on 14 April.
The EP consists of four exclusive remixes by Sonic Boom, Marlene Ribeiro, JM Lapham/Thor Harris and Shit & Shine, and a brand new unreleased Goat track called ‘Seu Sangue’.
Listen to Shit & Shine's rework of 'Do The Dance' above.
'Seu Sangue' is available to preorder via the link below as a ltd edition cassette with obi-strip:
The cassette is a Bandcamp exclusive, though the band will have a small amount for sale at their UK shows while stocks last.
The EP starts off with the ‘12” Extended Remix’ of lead single from
‘Oh Death’, ‘Under No Nation’. The remix has been created by MIEN’s John Mark Lapham, with help from the incredibly talented Thor Harris on extra percussion!
Next up is Rocket remixer faithful, Shit & Shine remixing the second single from ‘Oh Death’ the tribal rhythm driven track of ‘Do The Dance’.
Sonic Boom was the first person to ask if they could remix a track off of ‘Oh Death’, and he dived straight for the album’s opener, the fuzz heavy ‘Soon You Die’ – which is the third track on the EP.
The last remix is by Marlene Ribeiro (Gnod) who’s latest album ‘Toquei No Sol’ was released in January this year. Marlene takes the track ‘Remind Yourself’ and turns it into an organic, techno raga.
And finally, the EP is finished by a brand new track, the title track ‘Seu Sangue’ the EP’s title track is a beautiful, four minute, ‘folk drone’ hymn.
