May 2005: Ksiezyc, Harvest Rain, Tor Lundvall...A Strange Fortune Update, May 2005
GEM OF THE MONTH: KSIEZYC / KSIEZYC
An especially special Strange Fortune Gem of the Month for the month of May. The group is Ksiezyc ("The Moon") of Poland, and the album is a self titled CD. As soon as we heard this the contest was over.
Everything that comes out of the Obuh label has some special magic to it and now here's one of the best ever. Unique ethereal avant ritual folk with female vocals, this is not to be missed by anyone interested in music of strange & exquisite beauty.
A hand numbered limited edition item, in appropriately unique & beautiful handmade packaging, talk about a gem.
Strange Fortune believes in this release so much we decided to snatch up all remaining stock of the small run. You'll be hard pressed to find this title anywhere else at this point.
Ksiezyc is in stock while supply lasts at Strange Fortune, for just $13 and shipping. For more information about Ksiezyc please visit:
