You can't believe how excited we are to announce to you that on 27 August we will release 'Headsoup' by the mighty GOAT.
'Headsoup' is a globetrotting acid trip of an album, collecting rarities spanning the bands career: standalone singles, B-sides and two enormous brand new tracks!
'Queen of the Underground', the first of these new songs to be revealed is a truly herculean track – a swaggering psychedelic powerhouse of the very highest order. Watch the video made by the incredibly talented Mike Bourne from Teeth of the Sea above.
'Headsoup' is available on LP+7" and CD – you can preorder the special 'Rocket Shop' edition via this link:
But don't worry if these sell out within minutes, Normans Records and Rough Trade Records also have very ltd exclusive versions. There is also a ltd edition version available for indie stores. And for all you 'audio purists', there is a ltd 'Black' vinyl version available as well.
GOAT have also announced a handful of rare shows, and if you have witnessed this band in full flight on a stage before, you know these opportunities are not to be missed:
Aug 11 / CZ / Val de Bagnes / Palp Festival
Sep 11-12 / GR / Athens / Plissken Festival
Oct 23 / SE / Malmo / Plan B
Sometimes dark and heavy, at others joyous and beautiful, like Goat themselves ‘Headsoup’ is mysterious and constantly shapeshifting, difficult to properly pin down but constantly enthralling. Jazz-flute solos, pounding Afrobeat rhythms, ferocious desert blues, drifting Ethio-jazz and churning drones are just a fraction of their dazzling mix of influences. This is, as the name of Goat’s first album made clear, ‘World Music’ in its most complete form, a sound unrestrained by genre boundaries.
Almost a decade since Goat first emerged from the depths of Korpilombo, there is still no other band on earth that sounds quite like them.
