The best kept secret in music


"Fan Review of Croix De Feu"

Ambitous project that pays off with great results.

This is a cd that you can listen to over and over and you will always find a new little sound that you missed the last time. Incredibly ambitious with great attention to detail in every song. It's an album that shows many different aspects of their influences such as The Sea and Cake, Styrofoam and NIN. In one sentence, fresh catchy beats, ornamented with electonic experimental sounds and guitars that will rock your sock off!...And did I mention that you can tell they actually had a lot of fun making it? - Ms. Ciocco

"The Bottom Of My Bathtub Featured Song 9/17/06"

I really like this. The mix itself sounds good, and each layer works for me. Maybe I like that cluttered thing done right, and in this case its done very well I think. The song just works, I think it's a great job. - critic 'kirasongs' on

"I'm In My Car Featured Song 1/10/07"

Interesting how the music is so subtle and unabrasive. Like a big soft cloud of puffyfluff. It's nice to my ears. completely not obnoxious or petulant. It makes me want to like it more, not less. - critic 'Mr. Bratty' on


Croix De Feu (LP) ~ 2006


Feeling a bit camera shy


The Austin based mid-fi genre pillaging outfit known as The Twilight Lieutenants is comprised of a couple cats hailing from vastly different backgrounds but sharing eclectic musical tastes. Luke was fronting popular Champaign IL area alt-rockers Solips while Mychal bounced around the globe in the Army composing electronic instrumentals on his laptop under the name Sleepy 5 Orchestra while sorely missing his guitars. The two met online in 2004 due to a mutual appreciation in styles and Luke proposed a side project. They would not meet in person until the summer of 2005 at a Solips live show in Austin. After a short conversation they immediately hit it off. Recording began in October of 2006 after the unfortunate demise of Solips.

As proven in their independently recorded and produced debut album, Croix De Feu, The Twilight Lieutenants' introspective lyrics and skillful incorporation of a broad range of genres (from altrock to indietronic to electro to folk to glitchcore) truly sets them apart from the glut of cookie cutter bands crowding the music arena.
