Goat return with Commune, the eagerly awaited follow up to their astonishing debut album World Music. Commune continues on with World Musicâ€™s acidic grooves, hypnotic incantations, and serpentine guitar lines but also introduces a darker, more angry edge to the band, not seen before on previous releases. Starting with the layered percussive groove, Eastern guitar flourishes, and convoking vocals of â€œTalk To Godâ€, it re-establishes the trance-inducing rhythms and exotic blaze of guitar that characterized their debut so well. That spellbound pulse delves into darker and more propulsive territories on â€œWordsâ€ and â€œGoatslavesâ€, while â€œGoatchildâ€ veers towards the transcendental pop of â€˜60s Bay Area rock. The vintage psychedelic vibe permeates through songs like â€œThe Light Withinâ€ and â€œTo Travel The Path Unknownâ€â€”tracks that suggest that these rural Swedes operate on the same wavelength as the Turkish psych-folkies recently rediscovered by reissue labels like Finders Keepers. Commune reaches its apex when Goatâ€™s hymnal invocations meet a heavy doze of proto-metal fuzz on â€œHide From The Sunâ€ and â€œGathering of Ancient Tribesâ€.
