Our latest cover of Daft Punk’s “Voyager” has been getting a lot of love, including a feature by The Mile High Sound Movement. So we decided to give back by releasing two videos, a recap from Black Shirt Brewery, and an animation music video by Ill.Uminate.
A huge thanks goes out to Trevor McKenna for making us this recap video. Shout out to Black Shirt Brewery for booking us and making dank beers, as well as Ill.Uminate for putting on a killer light show.
Shout out to Mikey of Ill.Uminate for bringing life back to our logo in this animated music video of “Voyager”. Ill.Uminate is a mulit-media event service which specializes in lighting, check out a taste of their lighting in our BSB recap video.
A final big props goes out to The Mile High Sound Movement for continually supporting our music, and adding us to their monthly melodies playlist. This playlist features our music next to some badass musicians including Bass Physics, Project Aspect, Unlimited Gravity, Lucid Vision, So Down, Dynohunter and many more! We are incredibly honored to be featured in such a talented pool of musicians, thanks again to you all for listening!
“Voyager” received over 2,000 YouTube streams within the first day of being released, making it instantly the most viral tune we have dropped yet!! Cheers to you for listening, and thanks for joining the heard…
We took an analog approach to a Daft Punk classic in this cover of Voyager by breaking the song down, and transposing parts where necessary to play them on our instruments. In order to make the cover as unique as possible, we included an extra section of Floatgoat original composition. This is the first Floatgoat tune with our newly added drummer, Rusty Balalau, who was recorded at KMG Life Studios up in Boulder, Colorado. This tune was over two years in the making, which took a lot of time and energy, and was quite literally a voyage, so we couldn’t be more happy to finally share it with you all.
That’s right goat heard, your boys are playing our first major out-of-state music festival in beautiful Taos, New Mexico Saturday June 2nd at Music On The Mothership Festival! We couldn’t be more excited to perform on a bill with some amazing headliners including; Moe., Railroad Earth, Rising Appalachia, The Infamous Stringdusters, Liver Down The River, and many more! We’ll be blasting off in the Space Lounge at 9PM, let’s goat down!
Enter The Mothership
Our set time is Saturday 9:00-10:30 in the Space Lounge right after Railroad Earth slays the amphitheater!
“Scrumpies” is the next level of floatgoat jamtronica as the duo steps into a micro-particle funk portal unlike anything floating goats have ever heard. The roots of this funk portal come from jazz/rock fusion, and more virtuous parts over longer jazz influenced chord progressions. The licks get scrumpadellic in this track, but always expect more improvisation in a live performance. We got inspired to write this tune on a tour with Evanoff after playing Animas City Theatre in Durango. Some dude kept making up funny words for things, and one was scrumpies, ‘The stuff that sticks to your foot after a raging party’.
OUR FIRST EP!!!!!
Whatever Floats Your Goat
FloatGoat floated over some steep mountains, dodged some big birds, wrote some tunes, slayed some evil do’ers, and somehow found the time to complete this EP on their way through the Goat-Galaxy. FloatGoat sound design was produced using all natural Goat Cheese. Straight from the utters or something…Whatever Floats Your Goat…
Whatever Floats Your Goat is a paradigm shift in the direction of FloatGoat music as the duo steps into higher tempo funktronica. Their new style sounds kinda like Rick James laying down some funk house. “Masksks”, the single which hit 600 plays within the first week on soundcloud, is a glance into the funky guitar/bass lines, crunchy synths, and cutting edge sound design that is brought to your listening pleasure in Whatever Floats Your Goat.
