Spacegoat – Superstition
Self Released – 2016
Stoner, Classic Rock, Doomish Psych
Huge sounding and massive, Spacegoat play Classic Rock and Stoner with authority and power. Add some Proto- Doom and all is well on their new album Superstition. The riffs are as Sabbathy as you like without being too obvious which of course means they fucking rock like a mountain avalanche. Mid paced songs morph into slow hymns of despair but the melodic and fuzzed solos stop any signs of wrist slashing - instead you have the uncontrollable urge to start nodding and foot stomping. Even though there are hints of jamming in some tracks, the song structures keep everything pounding along. Acid psych elements swirl at the edge of things, giving hints of hidden mystery to the already impressive tapestry being woven. The band sound like they are playing live, there is an energy and urgency sometimes missing from this genre. You can almost feeling the members goading each other on to greater heights with an extra solo or a more impassioned vocal from Gina Rios who also is cranking out her bluesy axe riffs. This is impressive shit.
