Clash Magazine makes GOATMAN their track of the day
Track Of The Day 7/8 - Goatman
'Jaam Ak Salam'
Swedish psych collective Goat are a truly jaw-dropping live experience.
Recently playing the Clash stage at Citadel in West London, the band delivered an incredible show, pushing energy levels far up into the stratosphere.
The reclusive figure of Goatman is a key aspect of the group, helping to pursue their singular, always-inspiring creative sensibility.
New album 'Rhythms' will be released through Rocket Recordings in October, and from our initial listens it seems to be pretty damn spectacular.
Available to pre-order HERE, we're able to share lead song 'Jaam Ak Salam' and it's a masterpiece in hyper-intense tribal funk.
Essentially sitting somewhere between Fela Kuti, Sun Ra, and Syd Barrett, 'Jaam Ak Salam' is an incredible piece of kinetic funk matched against a powerhouse vocal.
A surging, inspiring piece of music that seems to rip itself out of your speakers, it recalls the greats of high life and Afrobeat while respectfully seeking out future paths.
Tune in now.
