Goat - World Music (2012)

Goat's first record is an excellent, unique take on modern psych, with a thick, distorted sound driven by propulsive, tribal percussion, stoned-sounding riffs, electric organ, and commanding lead vocals that are half punk, half lady witch doctor. Is there a lot of good psych out of Sweden?

Track listing:
1. Diarabi
2. Goatman
3. Goathead
4. Disco Fever
5. Golden Dawn
6. Let It Bleed
7. Run to Your Mama
8. Goatlord
9. Det Som Aldrig Förändras / Diarabi

People get ready

  3. "Is there a lot of good psych out of Sweden?"
    Well, there's The Spacious Mind ( and their various offshoots (Jens solo albums, Holy River Family Band)... which, if you could get some of those earlier albums up here, I would be much obliged.
