Michael LoCicero Don't much care for downloads, but not much choice here until there is a second pressing. I am 65yrs old with music tastes that have changed through the years. Philippe's releases are the absolute most wonderful adventures. Like finding a good book or a good movie & wanting to read it or see it over & over again. That is the way I feel about every DAY BEFORE US album. I want to play them ALL over & over, again & again. mike

"Autumnal Wandering" is a soundscaping based project largely impregnated by the purest incantatory-visionary forms of the Austrian-German “weltschmerz” poetical tradition (from the mystically haunted Christian symbolism of Georg Trakl, to the dreamlike romanticism of Ludwig Tieck and the tormented ecstasies of Nicolaus Lenau). Musically, the whole compositional process is turned to infinitely melancholic, sinister and epic semi-acoustic neoclassical sound textures, electronic drone in-flux, blurry organic chords and deeply emotional poetical lyricism. For this last project, Philippe Blache (Day Before Us) is accompanied by the vocalist and electronic sound designer Markus Pape (M@p).
