Review: Goat- World Music
Along with thousands of other music-obsessed dweebs, I enjoy sifting through the avalanche of year-end lists every December. While deriding or admiring the selections of list-makers is fun, my real goal is to discover titles I had overlooked. Spin's list included World Music by Goat. A blurb suggested it was "an atlas-worth of psychedelic sounds." I obviously had to check it out. Apparently, there's a backstory that has some factions of the indie-rock world abuzz. As much as I like a good hoax in the vein of Yma Sumac and Klaatu, I really don't care who's responsible for the danceable haze. Fela + Acid Mothers Temple? I'm in. Look and listen.
Kendrick Lamar's appearance at the Midland on Sunday infuriated me. Here's my review.
Making Movies' Conciencia Colectiva, a free odds-and-ends mixtape, is very worthwhile.
I'm smitten by bentcousin's "I Think I Like Your Girlfriend More Than You".
Dread in-a Babylon, indeed.
