As announced recently, ATP are collaborating with Songkick for their new Detour London project. We curated a list of bands that we would like to see play London shows, and asked people to pledge their votes for which they want to go to. Here's an update from our friends at Songkick...
"When ATP joined Detour as a curator earlier this month, we we're incredibly excited to be working with such a legendary team. Today, less than two weeks later, we are delighted to announce that Swedish psych afrobeat collective Goat are coming to London to play their debut headline show through Detour and ATP.
Goat's stunning debut album, World Music, received almost unanimous praise, and appeared on a ton of best of 2012 lists, including Rough Trade, Picadilly Records, and Uncut magazine. The Quietus described it as a "forceful and infectious masterpiece of cosmic rock & roll", whilst the Guardian reviewed it as "one of 2012s biggest underground rock albums" and "head-spinningly great fun throughout". We couldn't agree more.
It's not just their album that's good, either. Goat's first live UK performance at Supersonic was a highlight of the festival, so we're expecting this debut London headline show to be HUGE. If you're still not convinced, check out the two videos here and here."
