We’ve been publicising the new GOATS album for a couple of months now, so we’re absolutely delighted to announce its general release.
Far Out is GOATS’ second album, with a change of personnel and a change of direction. The core members Alan Morse Davies and Declan Owen remain and are augmented by Jorge Mario Zuleta on visuals, plus a number of guest musicians. Musically, there is the experimental feel from the first album, but much, much more: the album comprises a single 38 minute track containing elements of psychedelia, folk, Tuvan throat singing, all interwoven and drifting in and out of focus.
A psychedelic drone folk ambient noise radio station, not perfectly tuned, so that there is another psychedelic drone folk ambient noise radio station playing simultaneously. Requires repeated listening.
— Aeons And Monuments
We’ve been really encouraged by the reception this album has received already, with radio play on A Duck in a Tree (resonance.fm), Chunky’s Choice Cuts (dapper.fm), In Memory of John Peel, Wonky Planet Wireless Show and The Institute of Spectra-Sonic Sound, amongst others, and positive reviews in a number of blogs, including Houdini Mansions, Mystic Tape Deck, and Yeah I Know It Sucks.
It feels like your using your personal super power of flight and sailing along above the earth hearing many disparate sounds and occasionally dipping in on different places around the globe for a closer listen.
— Albert E. Trapezoid

But that’s not all. To accompany Far Out Jorge Mario Zuleta has also produced a full length video, entitled How to Cook a Queen. As befits a sister-piece to Far Out, it’s another psychedelic trip, surreal, spellbinding, disturbing and intriguing in equal measure. You can watch How to Cook a Queen here:
