"Tor's musical invocations are so authentic and effective it is mesmerizing."
"I'm convinced that this man is exploring new fields, maybe this way creating new perspectives in ambient."
"makes Goldfrapp, Scala and Portishead sound like ZZ Top. Trip hop minus the hop."
GEM OF THE MONTH: RICHARD MOULT
Strange Fortune's Gem of the Month for February 2006 is Richard Moult's THE SECRET JOY.
Richard Moult is an English composer working from a romantic tradition, who is behind an upcoming orchestral version of Current 93's Soft Black Stars. THE SECRET JOY is pure pastoral beauty performed exquisitely by piano and two female vocalists.
"Richard Moult is one of the most talented and interesting artists I have met, a creative polymath supreme whose work with Current 93 is very special indeed." -David Late Tibet
Strange Fortune is one of the first dealers to make this special release available in North America, and you won't find a better price anywhere.
Richard Moult's THE SECRET JOY is a French import for just $13 & shipping, in stock & available to order right away at
