Carlo De Filippo - Di Indomito Incanto
Neo-Classic, New Romantics For fans of Oniric, it should come as no surprise that Carlo De Filippo's solo side project borrows some elements from the cinema loving band. While they create anything ranging from spaghetti western tributes to psychedelic sounds that would fit a ride in an airplane over a vast sea, De Filippo's new solo album is vastly dependent on neo-classical music. That being said, you will also be well informed when I say that De Filippo's sounds are beautiful. 

I make no jest when I say that this music would be fitting for a frolic through a field of flowers, or even in a high fantasy film where the hero stands on a bridge overlooking the town he has sworn to protect from all evils. Fleeting, light marching drums and hopeful, epic and charming synth work will take you across continents of an imagined land. Wonderfully struck piano keys and the simple rhythm of a xylophone will let you explore all kinds of castles, bewildered structures, and royal hallways not suited for commoners. 

I do not know who sung in 'Daffodils', but whoever did has an amazing voice that is able to reach par with De Filippo's composition skills. This is by far my favorite track, and the songstress in this track further increases the fantasy I have found myself wrapped well within. 

I do find it rather hard to talk about this album as I rarely find myself listening to music such as this, but I can easily say that it is worth a place on anyone's shelf. Whether or not you're a fan of harder electronics or industrial, the simple beauty of this neo-classic release will warm that cold, bitter mechanic heart and bring it to life for a change.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
