"SNICKERS balances unsettling darkness against gentle textures and ties it together with cracked fuzz and warble. The first reference we could think of is the Residents -Eskimo in particular- but that still isnt enough to get one started as a listener. Each side is a medley of short compositions with Lynch-ian dream-like states presented as though it were recorded from a radio and stored under Laura Palmers bed for the last couple of decades. It seems to lean heavily on the musical aspects but does have some hushed and obscured vocals giving it an outsider pop edge. The essence of Snickers is unplaceable. It has you searching for familiar comparisons that will never be easily satisfied. Its probably just better to let go and be swept into its world with this follow up to their debut, On the HI-Fi." - Stimulus Progression.
"The music is super lo-fi, an avant, abstract, minimal murk pop, wreathed in TONS of FX, swaths of blurred reverb, a soft focus haze that renders the whole thing washed out and fantastically faded. It-¢‚Ǩ‚Ѣs a druggy, woozy, downer melancholia with nods to Sparklehorse, Sentridoh, the Supreme Dicks, and other home brewed pop oddities, a crystalline collection of warble and waver that we-¢‚Ǩ‚Ѣre digging a whole lot." - Aquarius. Forthcoming release on Siltbreeze.
After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.
This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).
Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.
Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.
Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).
So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
