Best Albums of 2014: 5. Commune - Goat (Rocket)
I was slow picking up on Goat when everyone else seemed to be salivating over them a couple of years ago, so I thought I'd get off the mark quicker this time round and I'm certainly glad I did. The way they get depicted at times you could be forgiven for anticipating a kind of inaccessible Scandanavian cosmic slush to pour out of the speakers. That's not to say there isn't some of that in there, but the groove it rides in on is utterly irresistible so the end product that is 'Commune' sounds both not of this planet and the most earthy thing you ever heard in your life.
