ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kid Goat is a real American Rock and Roll band based in the very unreal American environment of Washington, DC. With beautifully penned songs that bring to mind the likes of Steve Earle and John Hiatt, it would be easy to simply call Kid Goat an Alt-Country band, but the melding of the backgrounds and styles of its members create a sound that can only be described as straight forward rock and roll.

Singer/Songwriter Matt Aquiline was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, where Rock and Roll is a religion and Bruce Springsteen is its Messiah. In his youth, Aquiline worshiped at the altar of Springsteen, Neil Young and the great rock and roll bands of his hometown. From inception, Kid Goat’s mission was to bring the grooves of the E Street Band and the aggression of Crazy Horse to Aquiline’s songs. Drummer, Dan Barry, and bass player, John Woolf, stepped in to take care of those grooves and Brett Guizzetti was happy to bring some aggression on guitar. Belen Pifel adds the polish with her honest delivery of Aquiline’s lyrics and her addition to the three part harmonies with Aquiline, Woolf and Guizzetti.

Kid Goat's music takes you on a journey through blues, country and rock-n-roll to a place that is pure Americana, complete with brutal honesty, familiar stories and social conscience. Whether it is the tension of edgy rock and roll, the longing and sadness of a country number or the humor in just a damn clever tune, Kid Goat is songs that feel like home played by musicians who feel at home.

Terrific Americana Rock
Tom Petty once proudly sang about the southern accent where he came from. Well, despite Kid Goat’s eastern (DC & PA) origins, that accent imbues everything about Kid Goat’s excellent "These People Aren't You" CD, an exploration of roots and alternative country-leaning rock that adds up to Americana at its finest. With Matt Aquiline and Belen Pifel trading off lead singing duties, Kid Goat strikes a nifty balance over 13 guitar-driven songs that alternately rock, swing, and sway. A jangle guitar underpins the hook-filled opener, “Must Be Blind,” as the duo harmonize in the best southern tradition, while on “From You,” Pifel’s delicate country-tinged voice, which is reminiscent of Tift Merritt’s, is the perfect vehicle for an memorable, pretty tune. Elsewhere, Aquiline’s voice calls to mind the breakthrough BoDeans debut LP, with songs like “Pennsylvania” and “Working World” capturing the rawness at the heart of great rock ‘n’ roll. All told, “These People Aren’t You” is a solid debut CD for Kid Goat; one that knocks down borders in the service of terrific Americana rock.
