Michael LoCicero Philippe's "DAY BEFORE US" project is by far my current favorite. I actually have another being Fraser's 'CAUGHT IN THE WAKE FOREVER' now as for CRYSTAL SIGHS OF A BROKEN UNIVERSE what can be said. With his unpronounceable female vocalist intact, (this again breaks my not liking PIANO as a featured instrument) what we have here is nothing shy of GENIUS...Please give a listen & pursue his material. By the way he is writer for IGLOO MAGAZINE & has published several books.

Day Before Us is a modern classical-dark sound art project formed in 2011. Two full length albums have been published on Rage in Eden Records, respectively in 2012 and 2013. Twilight Records presents here their new LP. The musical register subverts stylistic boundaries to offer a creative dialogue between ethereal folk lyricism, piano based classical minimalism and dark ambient instrumentation. The whole musical ritual is surrounded by a hazy feeling of melancholia and a mysterious sacral aura
