Billygoat's music is lovely and dreamy, hypnotic and intricate—and impossible to separate from the transcendent animations they make to go with it. Or maybe the music is made for the films? It's hard to say which comes first, but it doesn't matter. Billygoat's mostly instrumental post-rock soundtracks miniature stop-motion films that range from the heartbreaking to the exhilarating. Aesthetically, the films are warmer and more homemade-feeling—and sometimes spookier—than their aural accompaniments, but they never feel amateur. Even as David Klein and Nick Woolley switch among their impressive trove of instruments, the morphing objects and photographs onscreen pluck at your heartstrings. Billygoat, who briefly called themselves Good Night Billygoat but are apparently back to their original moniker, will follow the blissful dream soul of Pwrhaus. Less eerie, perhaps, but just as transporting, the earnest vocals of Pwrhaus' Tonality Star exist in a world where true love collides with saxophones. REBECCA WILSON
