011 - "Commune" by Goat
I've spoken before of my love for the Swedish psychedelic band, Goat. Their most recent album, Commune, on Sub Pop, is a worthy follow up to their 2012 album, World Music.
Commune has all the elements that makes World Music such a total trip: out there vocals, mind-altering percussion and woozy, bluesy, psych guitars all swirling and twirl in your mind with such reckless abandon ... it makes for an truly enjoyable listening experience.
That said, this is a follow-up. No need ideas are expressed, no new direction taken ... but when they have, as a band, struck gold ... why change it?
