Crumbling latitudes form a sonic bridge connecting Hamilton, Ontario and ypsi, Michigan. -Ç Recorded at the peak of canaduhs summer, the fossils half of this split stinks of the melted ghetto blaster thistrack was recorded on. -Ç The whole things chugs along at a super slow-mo rate giving the whole track a gotham city sewer system field recording vibe. -Ç Waves is john olson of American tapes, wolf eyes, dead machines, and just about every other rad unit out there. -Ç Here he comes in surfing on a sonic torrent of sirens crashing like the waves and bringing the seashells onto the shore. -Ç Wavesss second track sounds like the distress call of a submarine crashed on the ocean floor being heard through dolphin ears. -Ç In a numbered edition of 100 with slim cases slathered in a whole bunch of paint, but actually ends up looking super slick. - Arbor.
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.
