April 2005: William Basinski, Tor Lundvall...

A Strange Fortune Update, April 2005


This month it was a tough call, so many great new albums from Sol Invictus, Nurse with Wound and others, but it ultimately had to go to... Silent Night by William Basinski.

60 minutes of pulsing shimmering high-pitched static drone, chaotic yet tranquil and enveloping, simple but perfectly sufficient. All the magic of the sound of insects at night. Basinski's most beautiful music yet?

Silent Night in stock for just $13 and shipping at www.strangefortune.com.


For anyone who may have put it off thus far, fair warning... Tor Lundvall's Last Light first edition will be sold out in the near future.

We are thrilled about how well this album is taking off. There will be a second edition, it will differ in some manner yet to be finalized.

For those wanting to read more about Last Light, here are a few of the press reviews so far:


And here's a new interview with Tor about his music & art:


Tor Lundvall's Last Light is still available as a numbered first edition for just $12 and shipping at www.strangefortune.com.
