"To kick-start the new year Deep Earth have carried on their meditative krauthaus vision to the new decade treading fresh terrain with a slab of long-playing scorchers aptly titled “Nachtmusik”. The new LP – a heady 4 songs in 35 minutes – finds the gentlemen once again at the helm of an aural journey forging their ways through the disparate manifestations of our synthetic and kosmische times. “Nachtmusik”, a fitting title perhaps because of the album’s tendency to revel in the shadowy depths and brooding hazes, unfolds with a rhythmic determination that drives the album like a locomotive to it’s completion. As much indebted to Sly as they are to Schulze, Deep Earth have struck a keen balance amidst their fervent enthusiasm for myriad styles and forms. Sax wails, cascading guitars, and motorik grooves dot the scenery. Deep times, indeed."
