-¢??The Risk Of Gravitation is the stunning new Summer 08 Tour mini-album by Brooklyns LA OTRACINA, who have long wandered and forged sounds in the hidden lands of heavy psychedelia and progressive space music. This 7 track 32+ minute excursion is a major paradigm shift for the group as drummer Adam Kriney is now on vocal duties as well, adding yet another layer of epic intensity to the swirling chaos of Evan Sobels Fender Bass VI low-end destruction and new guitarist Philippe Ortanezs ecstatically angular bliss-out. This disc shifts between tracks of classic LA OTRACINA free-form freakout brilliance and their current vocal-heavy jams, which put the progressive psych back into early heavy metal while exploring realms of dark doom-sludge thunder and the graceful complexity of early Canterbury jazz-rock. Refusing to be quantified, it is clear that LA OTRACINA remain in an orbit of their own, seeking out the cosmic weird and channeling it through hard rock power! First press limited edition of 100 numbered copies." - Colour Sounds Recordings
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.
