Record Reviews


World Music (Rocket Recording/Stranded Rekords)

Goat comes with a dense, potentially dressed-up mythology. Originating in the remote Swedish city of Korpilombolo, the group claims to have a decades-long history of collaboration, with new members humbly shifting in and out as the years go by. World Music, then, should be taken as a document of immense epochal significance. Deliriously enigmatic yet happily groovy, anonymity begets zapped guitar freak-outs, rumbling hand-powered percussion, sizzling funk, and rock-hard American blues. For all Goat's press release theatrics, they're human after all. World Music sounds like a truly panglobal operation, a remarkably organic siphon of dozens of musical traditions.
