Goat

Goat are a mysterious cult-like Swedish alternative and experimental fusion music group that originates from north of the Arctic Circle in Korpilombolo, Norrbotten County, and now reside in Gothenberg. Little is known about the individuals in the group except that they all know that Goat is mainly a symbol of sacrifice and each understand the importance of sacrificing the individual for the collective good if you are to become one with the rest of humanity and universe.

Their break-out debut long player, World Music, which blended Nigerian afrobeat, German krautrock, Anatolian funk, and a host of other global micro-niches into a hallucinatory cultish celebration of rock’s diverse manifestations, made many 2012 best album lists. With the 2014 follow up, Commune, they delivered a heavy dose of acidic grooves, hypnotic incantations, and serpentine guitar lines to explore new territories and hit the year’s best-of lists again. They’ve taken their mystical, hypnotic and electrifying show throughout the USA and Europe, and now they embark on their debut tour of Australia.

King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard

After their sold out Gizzfest national tour in May, Australia’s favourite garage-psych rebels, King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard, headed overseas to export their live and musical craziness throughout the USA and Europe. The band has been slaying it on these distant shores and they’ve played just about all the major festivals that every rock and roller dreams of playing, including Glastonbury, Bonnaroo, Fyf Fest, Roskilde, Positivus, Hopscotch, Latitude, and Down the Rabbit Hole as well as driving, flying and floating thousands of miles to play dozens of sold out club dates—zigzagging their wild shit around the world.

In the mean time they have also, of course, announced their seventh, yes SEVENTH studio album following up from the mellow, groove-heavy zone-outs of this year’s Quarters, and the freaky garage punk-rock boogie pulse of 2014’s I’m In Your Mind Fuzz with this totally weird, acoustic, pastoral psych folk LP called Paper Mache Dream Balloon, which is out in November.
