GEM OF THE MONTH

Incredible response to our Gem of the Month offering last month (Ksiezyc / Ksiezyc). It's safe to assume this name was previously unknown to just about everybody, yet the album became a surprise success of the Spring. From the feedback I've been hearing it seems many of you have been quite pleased with this little gem. For anyone who missed Ksiezyc, there are a few last copies of this beautiful import from Poland, just $15 and shipping at www.strangefortune.com.

Strange Fortune's Gem of the Month for the month June is: Night Chorus by Harvest Rain.

The new album of upcoming American dark folk group Harvest Rain pursues a "ghost ambient" style and features guest musician Tor Lundvall for one track. A soft and morose, lush atmospheric mix of keyboards and guitars and vocals that will bring to mind But What Ends When the Symbols Shatter-era Death in June.

In Strange Fortune's judgment, this album puts Harvest Rain toward the top of the American post-industrial dark folk scene. Night Chorus is in stock for just $12 and shipping at www.strangefortune.com.


MUSICA MAXIMA MAGNETICA

Strange Fortune is now handling the exclusive North American distribution for the veteran Italian label Musica Maxima Magnetica (MMM).

MMM has been around for quite a few years and has a number of real gems in their catalogue. Twelve Thousand Days, the Mick Harris & Martyn Bates Murder Ballads series, a few of the best releases of Sleep Chamber...

And one of my personal favorite ambient releases of all time, Aquam Metallicam by Alio Die & Nick Parkin. If you only listen to one more instrumental ambient recording in your life, make it Aquam Metallicam, trust me on this. This Italian import from MMM is in stock for a mere $12 and shipping at www.strangefortune.com.
