“We chose the following songs because they are lovely.” GOAT’s playlist of obscure ’60s pop, rock and jazz is, of course, brilliantly fuzzy.


Clandestine Swedish psych band GOAT have kindly made us a playlist of some of their favourite music before they perform at Primavera Sound in June.

This being a group cloaked in robes and secrecy, we can’t be too sure as to which two members compiled this mix of 60s pop, rock and jazz, but needless to say it’s just the right amount of obscure.

Some tracks come with a few words (below); tracks 7 to 15 are simply surmised in the third person: “Goat chose the following songs because they are lovely…”

Thank you, GOAT. We love you.

P.S. There is also a (slightly different) version of this playlist on our new Apple Music page, so check it out.

01. Duke Ellington – Blue pepper
“Heavy stuff from the duke of jazz.”

02. Fadoul – Laylat al jadba
“You just gifts dig in to the vocals.”

“Nice song in the morning”

05. King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard – Sense
