Gnod's Mirror in The Quietus albums of the year so far


It reads:

34. GNOD - Mirror
(Rocket)
"Every second of this album feels gargantuan. The aural vistas seems to stretch for mile after mile of mountainous terrain, complete with giant peaks and chasms. This is where Gnod stride gloriously ahead of many of their contemporaries."

Mick Middles

In our culture of continual exposure, it’s rare that artists opt to lurk outside the public eye. To crate diggers and guitar mystics, Sweden’s masked psych collective GOAT may qualify as the greatest modern pop-culture mystery, and Requiem offers more questions than answers. GOAT’s only declaration for Requiem is that it is their “folk” album, and the album focuses more on subdued bucolic ritualism than acid freakouts. But GOAT hasn’t foregone their fiery charms—tracks like 'Try my Robe' conjure the sultry pulsations that ensnared us on 2012’s World Music and 2014’s Commune.

'Requiem' is released on Sub Pop in North America, Stranded in Scandinavia and Rocket in the rest of the world.
