We retreat to Scandinavia again this week, this time travelling further north than ever before in order to meet Goat.

Whilst the band (allegedly) come from the Arctic Circle, the music couldn’t be further from the frozen north in sound. A strange fusion of psychedelic rock and afrobeat, ‘World Music’ plays like a 60s throwback. All at once intoxicating and rousing, it’s an assured debut by a mysterious, talented band. There’s everything from Can to Parliament found in here, alongside influence from a bunch of African artists. We touch upon all of this in today’s episode, and a lot more besides.

Chris has compiled a playlist that serves as a brief intro to Afrobeat and more.

Is this their best album? As ever, the decision is yours.
