Dialing in from a similarly warped and distant otherworld as Brooklyn's own psychedelic jamming troupe Nymph comes alien Swiss collective, Goat. Mysterious, cosmic and illuminating with familial, Zen master vibes, Goat--recently scooped up by the Sub Pop behemoth—unearth as a drum circle beating, tribal-centric, psych color swirling and chant-heavy jambandness of dream-like enormity. On “Shipbuilding,” its throbbing debut Sub Pop single, these remote Swedish village crusaders twist Middle Eastern-flavored guitar riffage, pulsating Voodoo army drumming and spiritual howling and fly to the heavens with a righteously melodic thumper. Come join the cult of Goat.
