Sub Pop is pleased to announce the release of Requiem by Swedish psych-rock collective GOAT. Requiem is the band’s third full-length and their second for Sub Pop, and the 13-track album features the songs “Try My Robe,” “Alarms,” and “Union of Sun and Moon.” Requiem finds GOAT focusing more on their subdued, bucolic ritualism than psilocybin freakouts, with a pronounced folk-rock influence pervading the album. But Goat hasn’t foregone their fiery charms—tracks like “All-Seeing Eye” and “Goatfuzz” conjure the sultry pulsations that ensnared us on 2012’s World Music and 2014’s Commune.
Requiem is available to preorder now, and LP pre-orders through the Sub Pop Mega Mart and independent retailers near you will receive the limited Loser Edition on translucent red vinyl with black streaks (while supplies last).
