Earth and Sky is the new double album from Musk Ox/The Night Watch guitarist Nathanael Larochette. Consisting of two distinct yet complimentary albums, Earth is a collection of solo classical guitar works which act as the stark acoustic counterpart to Sky, a layered 40min ambient electric composition. The neofolk and post rock influences which inspired the creation of Musk Ox are each given their own space to breathe and evolve on Earth and Sky, creating an ever unfolding work of intimate vastness

“Earth And Sky is the work of an artist, not a performer. It’s pure art and showcases the abilities of a gifted composer. 8/10”

– Progressive Music Planet

“I am utterly blown away by the sheer beauty that encompasses the soundscapes. There is an honestly found in the music, and the music evokes incredible images when you carefully listen. There is a poetry found in the tones and chords of the guitar and ambiance. The artwork is stark, open, and beautiful and fits the music incredibly well…. a natural progression to his art. 10/10”
