End of April 2006: Shayo in North America/Listen Now at Strange Fortune/Cynfeirdd Festival ParisA Strange Fortune Update End of April 2006
SHAYO IN NORTH AMERICA
One of our favorite upcoming European mystical folk noir labels is Shayo of Switzerland, who in their first couple years have already signed artists such as Martyn Bates, Sally Doherty, In Gowan Ring, and Neither/Neither World (all ex-World Serpent).
Strange Fortune is happy to announce we're now making Shayo available to North America for low prices, as official promoter & distributor.
Check out the available Shayo catalogue - Swiss imports in stock right now and can be yours for a mere $13 & shipping each at
Shayo label at Strange Fortune
LISTEN NOW AT STRANGEFORTUNE.COM
By popular request the Strange Fortune catalogue is now being sonified for your listening enjoyment & enrichment.
So far you can take a free small taste of all the following:
all albums by Tor Lundvall
all albums by Sally Doherty
all Cynfeirdd releases
all Shayo releases
all the latest Gems of the Month
Sol Invictus Sol Veritas Lux Reissue Spring 2006
(oh my what is that track sampled, might it be a bonus track?)
The samples will be around one minute each, carefully excerpted to give you a good idea of what the release has to offer. The goal is to have the highest quality samples of this music you can find.
Go forth now and discover, just be warned that you may soon be angry with me, as you might find it's even easier to come up with a long list of albums you need to aquire...
In case you're anywhere within travelling distance of Paris next week, be sure not to miss "The 1st Chantier Musical" festival sponsored by our friends at Cynfeirdd.
The four day festival takes place May 5-8 and from the looks of the plans, it's a folk-noir & neoclassical event of a lifetime. The incredible lineup includes:
Clair Obscur with orchestra
Sally Doherty and the Sumacs
Gae Bolg with orchestra
& tons more
The 1st Chantier Musical
Your humble proprietor will spend that weekend lamenting the fact I'm not there. Kindly report back all about it.
or maybe I could try swimming across the ocean...
