In "Last year, the next day" musician Massimo Discepoli partially moves away from the slowly developing ambient atmospheres of his two previous albums, choosing instead to use musical structures closer to post-rock, jazz and progressive, thus creating eight instrumental pieces that draw evocative and abstract landscapes, in which electronics are combined with the numerous acoustic instruments used. As usual, the rhythmic aspect is of great importance, with the use of many percussions (some of them self-built) alongside the drums and repetitive and hypnotic patterns, which give a much more global sound to the album, without overwhelming the melodic strength that characterizes the songs, both the more intense ones and the introspective ballads. The result is a music without borders but at the same time abstract, reminiscent of the atmospheres of Peter Gabriel, David Sylvian, Tim Hecker and Portico Quartet.
