goat: live ballroom ritual

In August 2012, Swedish collective Goat released their debut album, World Music. The record went on to become one of the most talked-about albums of the year, topping many "Best of 2012" lists and the following year, the band took the album on the road. Footage, audio, and photos of their sold-out U.S. shows streamed across the Internet and revealed a band at the top of their powers. They had taken the magic of World Music, extended it, psyched it out, and explored its groove, further representing it in a mesmerizing live performance. Rocket Recordings realized that they needed to capture and document this much-hyped set for all the world to experience. On July 27, 2013 they appeared at Camden's Electric Ballroom in London to celebrate the recent launch of their single "Stonegoat." The show was incendiary; the 1,100-plus crowd either danced furiously to the band's psyched grooves or stood there, mouths open, gazing in awe at the spectacle they couldn't believe they were witnessing. Goat went on to wow more people across Europe when their onstage rituals visited the cream of the summer festivals at Primavera, Roskilde, Flow, Way Out West, etc. After a long but successful summer of 2013, the band are now back in Korpilombolo, writing the follow-up to World Music.
