"Houston, Texas based INDIAN JEWELRY are on a roll. Last years Free Gold" album blew many minds and was the best document to that point of their mastery of the aural psychic-swirl. Their side-long contribution to this split EP highlights what they do best...combining uncanny songcraft with insistent, pulsing and throbbing layers of sound. With "Zing Zang" its as if they are leading a pied piper-like caravan through the countryside, picking up joyful followers along the way (zing) while sternly pointing out the hazards of following (zang). Its the sound of a band confidently striding off in their own direction, which is an all too rare thing these days.\r\nFellow Houstonians FUTURE BLONDES (Domokos of RUSTED SHUTs side project) occupy the "other side" of this record in more ways than one. Their "Heartless" is a relentless piece of dark, hypnotic electro-spuzz that isnt going to fill anyone with anything resembling hope for the human race. Not so much music made for the denizens of the dance floor but more like a soundtrack for the detritus left on the dance floor after everyone has gone home. Limited to 525 copies." - Dull Knife.\r\n
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.
