DELIVERY HEALTH - Hard Off

Delivery Health is Giovanni Di Domenico, Jim ORourke, and Tatsuhisa Yamamoto. Following the release of Delivery Health in 2015 (SW 010LP), the trio composed by Giovanni Di Domenico, Jim ORourke and Tatsuhisa Yamamoto returns with yet another amazing album. Delivery Health became the band name and Hard Off is the title of the second album. Recorded at the great GOK Sound studio in Tokyo, Hard Off brings the same warmness in sound (thanks again also to the fabulous mixing work done by ORourke) and attentive structural sensibility, this time with a more lyrical" vein. Against the odds of geography -- continuously coming together within various collaborations and combinations of the three -- Giovanni Di Domenico, Jim ORourke, Tatsuhisa Yamamoto have begun to assemble one of the most exciting bodies of organized sound in recent years. The trios second outing under the moniker Delivery Health is no exception to the rule. Recorded in Tokyo between 2012 and 2013 and emerging on the ambitious Silent Water imprint, Hard Off sidesteps signifiers and expectations, weaving a knotted tapestry from sheets of sound. An assembly, a lesson, and a simple conversation between friends, Hard Off is equally an exercise in loss. Its creators are three masters of their form, relinquishing ego and presumption for the honesty found in unforeseen truths. Preconception, reflex, and imprint fall away; a potent reminder of heights unveiled by the unmediated self. Hard Off is a non-place, an undetermined sonic location without allegiance. These are considerations which begin with the ear -- elastic excursions and experiments in improvised sound. Presenting startling and unexpected range, new worlds emerge and evolve from within the fog; rippling textural ambiance, harsh interlocking atonality, subtle and delicate interplay to outright rocking jam. An album which always seeming exactly what and where it needs to be, while moving toward where must be gone. Cover picture by Antonio Julio Duarte. 180 gram vinyl; Edition of 300." - Silent Water.

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.
