"America’s dark and dusty past – drunken New Orleans jazz, cursed Mississippi Delta blues, steamy Chicago shuffle, staggered St. Louis rag, sun-drenched California surf rock, Memphis soul, klezmer born in Eastern Europe but brought through Ellis Island by Jewish immigrants, even sparks of the punk rock that sprang from the grime of New York’s CBGB. Van Goat’s music is all of these things and, perhaps, none of these things, for this panoply of styles merges, fuses and melts in such a way that the end result sounds like nothing else in modern music." Thank you to Nick from Louder Than A Doubt for the thoughtful profile of our new record 🙏 We’ll leave a link to read the whole thing in our profile ↖️ Check out more of his writing at louderthanadoubt.com
