Housewives – FF061116 released today

“A bristling unit of minimalist fury that's equal parts thrilling and unsettling.” The Quietus

“Filled with attitude, and raw unadulterated power” Piccadilly Records 'Albums of the week'

“The more you dig into the work, them more it leads you off into interesting, in this case sonic, directions.” Psych Insight

“Unique and oddly timeless piece of avant-garde audacity” Normans Records

Housewives new album FF061116 is released today in all good record shops!

‘FF061116’ is split into seven excerpts and built on powerful repetition, it’s a mind-melding travail into abstraction and abjection which draws on post-punk, jazz, drone, electronic and avant-garde tropes to create an unclassifiable assault that feels oddly timeless - innovative, invigorating and bare-boned yet tapping into a uniquely English lineage that extends back to the 1970s and forward, into the unknown.

Gigsoup reviews Goat at Womad

It reads:

Mysterious Swedish group Goat brought their hypnotic blend of heavy rock and world music influences to the Siam tent later in the evening. Fuzzed out guitars met tribal rhythms and chanted vocals, with the sound sometimes treading into desert blues territory. The spectacular shamanistic robes and headgear made the performance one of the more theatrical events of the weekend, with the tambourine-wielding dance moves of the group’s two singers adding to an entrancing effect. Tunes from the band’s latest album ‘Requiem’ featured most prominently, but the distinctive rhythm and guitar riff of ‘Talk to God’ formed an epic climax to the show...
