The former Galaxie 500 rhythm section, Damon Krukowski & Naomi Yang have been making music now as a duo for a significantly longer than Galaxie 500’s three album run over two years. Damon & Naomi’s new album, Fortune is a companion piece to Naomi Yang’s short film, the music is so involved with the film and the film with the music, together they play out more like a long-form music video. The music and the film deal with Yang’s feelings following the death of her photographer father. She compares and contrasts his great work as an artist with his not-so-perfect role as a parent. The title then, is a nostalgic yet sardonic one.
Fortune is available on vinyl LP and CD.
