Boomkat Product Review:
The Deeep very recently charmed us with their muggy avant-disco for 100% Silk, but 'Life Light', released on cassette in 2010, is a much darker, tormented affair. The mugginess is still firmly apparent but the disco is all but gone, save some blunted beats on 'Slow Coaster' and 'Mudd', but you'd hardly dance to them. The real mood of these six tracks is subterranean and slightly occult, thanks largely to the hypnotic catharsis and sub-Carpenter-esque synth drones, especially on the amazing two part 'Ballad Of The Abyssal Plain' and the much stranger 'Dream'. Really pushing the right buttons here. Another great, hugely rewarding album from Not Not Fun.
