Track Of The Day: Goat - 'Hide From The Sun'

Swedish psychedelic collective Goat have been busy over the last couple of years. As well as touring the world, setting various festivals alight, releasing a top-notch studio LP and a live album (as well as some superb one-off singles), the band have also been working on their second full length. With the album now finished, Goat prepare to release it on September 22 via the excellent Rocket Recordings, a label that just seem to stop releasing quality music. It will be titled 'Commune', and is available to pre-order in a variety of different formats, including black vinyl LP with diecut sleeve, and various different gold vinyl bundles, which all come with a bonus 7" of exclusive tracks. Go HERE to check those out and see which one takes your fancy. Taken from the album is this riotous new track 'Hide From The Sun', which builds on urgent, oddly-timed rhythms to create a catchy yet refreshingly peculiar blend of Eastern melody, hallucinogenic vibes, searing fuzz guitar and confrontational, otherworldly vocals. Deeply insistent and thrillingly hypnotic, it'll give you an overwhelming urge to dance, although you may be too mesmerised to move...

Goat have a selection of UK dates, including a slot at the mouth-wateringly ace Liverpool Psych Fest. Details below...

Glasgow’s SWG3 (28th)
