After two limited cassette releases, Unknown Fortune is the vinyl debut for STEFAN CHRISTENSEN & FRIENDS moniker. Featuring all members of MOUNTAIN MOVERS and HEADROOM, Unknown Fortune showcases a super group of sorts taking some time to unwind and flow together under the unique and steady guidance of the seasoned songwriter and noisemaker. Recorded by former Mountain Movers drummer JOHN MILLER, at his cozy home studio in one exceptionally productive whirlwind weekend, the album is bookended by two heavy psych explorations.
Both feature Christensen and Headroom/Mountain Movers guitarist KRYSSI BATTALENE engaging in aural duals that will not soon be forgotten. The pair dialogue in a sonic language all their ownÑpredicated by over a decade of friendship and musical collaboration, their innate ability to call-and-respond, ebb-and-flow, push-and-pull is without parallel amongst contemporary duos. Meanwhile the consistent and driving forces of RICK OMONTE and DAVID SHAPIRO provide rhythm and structure to even the most chaotic feedback immersions of Christensen and Battalene.
Limited to 250 copies with beautiful artwork provided by MATTHEW FORD (Yves/Son/Ace, Factums).
