Van Goat is in the business of writing not only songs that you can dance to, but entire albums that you can enjoy front to back without pausing or skipping: a musical experience wherein each successive song’s mottled riffs and bewildering charisma is pleasantly startling.

“This song we wrote with Benjamin Biolay is about that: making it in Paris, but also making my way to Paris, physically speaking. If I can make it in Paris, then I can make it everywhere. I love Biolay, he’s a true modern icon. In my world, he is the King of Paris and in this song, the King of Paris welcomes me. His part, rapped more than sung, is the purest version of what I admire in French poetry. I’m proud of this collaboration, it’s probably my favourite song I’ve ever been part of.”
Scoring duties on Hereditary — an upcoming horror film directed by newcomer Ari Aster — came to Colin Stetson (Lavender, collaborator of Arcade Fire), and he’s conjured an instant classic where the end result is a uniquely uneasy, sinister suite of music capped with one of the most unexpected conclusions in recent years – listeners will find themselves totally possessed. Stetson is equally at home in the avant jazz tradition of players who have pushed the boundaries of the instrument through circular breathing, embouchure, etc. (i.e. Evan Parker, Mats Gustafsson) and at the nexus of noise/drone/minimalist music that encompasses genres like dark metal, post-rock and contemporary electronics (i.e. Tim Hecker, Ben Frost – both of whom have mixed or remixed Stetson recordings).

Look no further than Vancouver natives BLACK WIZARD, who are working diligently to keep that flame alive, bridging classic rock like Thin Lizzy with modern stoner metal tones in a way that we just haven’t been hearing in the past year to such a degree of success.”
