SOUND GOAT PROJECT: Deep Inside (release date April 30, 2020)

Artful.  Intelligent.  Top Notch.


Wow- What a Great Find!

So sorry, can’t tell you much about Sound Goat Project– (or is it Soundgoat Project? Don’t know, doesn’t matter)- since there isn’t much to be found.

Three person outfit based in Poland.

Krzysztof Styrna – Guitars
Marcin Palider – Bass, Keys, Piano
Łukasz Micuda – Drums

And a host of guests who play some tasty, important roles on this short, impressive, awesome album of 36 minutes-and-change.

Some flute.  Female and male vocalizing and vocals.  Rap (!).  Saxophone.  Wailin’ harmonica.


I’m telling you, this one’s a humdinger

No pun intended- this one hits all the right notes for a progressive rock fanatic.


-tempo changes

-textures ranging from moody to gutsy

-sophisticated arrangements


-quality song-composition.

I could go on.  So I guess I will!

My *Current* Favorite track:

This one’s a fine example of why I’m sitting here grooving.

After all, what’s more important than love?  But wait, there’s more!

After a moody opening, the hard-driving full band enters. Great licks, guitar/bass/drums all working like a well-oiled machine.  But a musical machine.  Then a change to crisp guitar arpeggios with jazzy backing from bass and drums.

Then we get a passage with dreamy keys, and that quietly cooking active bass line that propels the track until the tasty drums enter- never overdone, always on the nose.  Builds, the riff growing, the band steaming ahead, and bam!  It ends with a bang, not a whimper.


Can you resist the funky open?  I can’t.  Then the powerful riffs enter, and wait, that gives way to funky bass/guitar/drums…oops, here come atmospheric keys…

These guys pack more into a three minute tune than Van Camp’s stuff into their cans of baked beans.  Or something.   Sometimes words fail.


I’ll Stop Now

Enough enthusing.  This one’s really great, and I don’t mind saying so.  Great playing, great tunes, great ideas throughout.
