Albums Of The Week: Goat | Levitation Sessions

The mysteirously masked Swedes are the real deal on this live album and video.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Levitation Sessions return with a live performance film and album from Goat.

Despite their cryptic and secretive lifestyle, the mysterious Swedish collective have been at the forefront of modern psych, and this live release follows a decade of cult-classic LPs — each a timeless entry into the psych canon, a heady mix of world music, ’60s fuzz, Afrobeat, funk grooves and Swedish psychedelia — from their 2012 debut World Music to their most recent 2023 release Medicine. Their Levitation Sessions film and live album were recorded in the heart of winter in early 2023, capturing the alchemy of the band’s creative process and a glimpse of their legendary live show, filmed in the band’s studio headquarters.

“We chose to record the session in our old temple during a cold night under a huge midnight sun in the darkest winter time,” they say. “We thought it would bring out the best magic in us and we think it did. As the hours went by it started to loosen up and we went into some free form experiments with our electronics. In the end, this film became a perfect representation of what we do when we hang out.”
