-¢‚Ǩ-ìThe 7" comes in a hand-numbered edition of 100 copies on transparent vinyl with letter-pressed covers. There are four different variants of the album cover using a different photograph. Includes free mp3 download of Sleeping/Wandering 7" EP + extras. "Sleeping/Wandering" is Luciernagas vinyl debut. This limited edition 7" EP contains extended and alternate versions of the tracks "Sleeping Green-Eyed Girl", from the recent "To The Centre..." limited edition cassette released by UK label Invisible City and "Wandering June", from the self-released and now sold out "Tile II" limited edition cassette. The alternate version of -¢‚Ǩ-ìSleeping Green-Eyed Girl-¢‚Ǩ¬ù showcases Luciernagas penchant for constructing beautifully expansive work from a core of shimmering drones and occasionally dissonant passages. Gorgeous music stretches out above a hypnotic loop as he carefully layers delicate, crystalline feedback-like sounds atop. The result is a song that glistens away in a beautiful slumber befitting its dream-like title. On the flip sides extended -¢‚Ǩ-ìWandering June-¢‚Ǩ¬ù, Luciernaga again builds from a foundation of gentle, but not necessarily delicate loops of sound, to which he adds a heavier, bowed string like drones and hints of feedback. This almost meditative loop evolves with time, and with him processing the sound at times into what could be a jaunty whistle, there is a whimsical subtext to his overall serious composition. Luciernaga is the experimental ambient music project of Chilean-Brazilian by way of Brooklyn artist Joao Da Silva. A former hardcore punk front man, guitar player, and zine editor who took an active role in Santiago, Chiles hardcore-punk scene during the early 90s (theres even a full-length documentary about it!). Joao turned to "droning guitar electronics that can vacillate significantly between dark terrors and bright, shimmering expanses of sound" (Brainwashed.com) after moving to NYC in 2008. He has since released a series of limited edition cassettes and CD-Rs on various labels in the U.S. and abroad. Luciernagas music was recently featured in -¢‚Ǩ-ìCircle In The Rock-¢‚Ǩ¬ù a short-film directed by Ellis Bahl and starring Brandon Sexton III.-¢‚Ǩ¬ù - Fabrica.
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.
