Rabbit Eclipse is the second full-length recording from the legendary Ksi-тѢ-֬ºyc, following their self-titled debut from 1996. The Moon never went away. The 2013 Penultimate Press reissue of Ksi-тѢ-֬ºycs timeless debut (PP 008LP) exposed the band to a large new audience, resulting in a return to live performance and the subsequent development of new material. Rabbit Eclipse was recorded in Warsaw from May through September 2015 within the idyllic Palladian palace Krölikarnia (The Rabbit House"). All original members gathered to conjure the peculiar hybrid of the ancient and the contemporary unique to the band. Rabbit Eclipse presents a rich and subtle environment of beguiling narratives hanging in suspended tension. This opens up an entirely new phase in the cycle of the band where an enchanting discrete musical continuum of rich and subtle sound excursions is enveloped in a mysterious melancholia. Another exemplary presentation from one of Polands most idiosyncratic and respected outfits. Rabbit Eclipse is packaged in a four-page DVD-format inverted digipack. Edition of 500. Agata Harz: vocals, objects; Katarzyna Smoluk-Moczyd-ւÄöowska: vocals, keyboards, objects; Lechos-ւÄöaw Polak: accordion, keyboards, synthesizers; Remigiusz Mazur Hanaj: tapes, hurdy-gurdy, violin; Robert Nizi-ւÄûski: clarinet, keyboards, objects; Pawe-ւÄö Roma-ւÄûczuk: vielle, Stoessel lute, objects." - Penultimate Press.
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.
