wonderful psychedelic neo krautrock in the tradition of the can and neu. great drummer! hypnotic stuff from japan! i saw them live, pure dope, more energetic. the female drummer is the recarnation of klaus dinger, like a power clockwork.
Favorite track: Futsu Ni Ikirenai.
Minami Deutsch’s debut album is sated with an absolute love toward Krautrock and the driving Motorik beat.
The cassette edition includes two bonus live recordings from 2014 taken at “Krautrock Night,” organized by Tokyo Psych Fest.
Cassette edition limited to 100 copies.
Minami Deutsch was formed by Kyotaro Miula (guitar, vocals, synthesizer) in Tokyo in 2014. Their sound is influenced by both their love for Krautrock legends such as Can and Neu!, and the band members being self-professed "repetition freaks" who heavily listen to minimal techno.
The music proceeds straightforwardly with the Motorik beat (Hammer beat), devised by Klaus Dinger (Kraftwerk, Neu!), as its central axis. Humorous, yet bizarre Japanese lyrics are whispered over a hard, cold beat that is maniacally repeated, creating a pleasant ambience of electronic pulses drifting in space. Sharp guitar tones reminiscent of Michael Karoli (Can) occasionally explode into fuzz distortion, on the verge of collapse.

One of the best bands of the last decade. No question. Their discography is fantastic. This album and their Stone Garden EP are some of the best psychedelic projects to be released in the last 5 years. Absolutely top people too. So nice. Met them in Indianapolis in February 2019. Go is a sweetheart. Guruguru Brain is swell label too. maxdenari
