MILLER, EVAN/GOWN - Split

The power is out. The power is back. This tape juxtaposes two expert guitarists against each other on the natural A/B boundaries of the cassette medium. Iowas own Evan Miller creates long drifting ragas (or as he like to call them, spells) of acoustic guitar work akin to contemporaries such as Fahey and Rose, but strays from their minstrel\r\nin the country" vibe and going more towards "a fisherman on the wharf" style. Even though there are no words, the emotion and story of his songs are obvious. "Specter" was recorded during a storm adding an ominous atmospheric quality to the meandering spell. On the flip side, Gown creates sky high electric guitar drones similar to his work in Bark Haze, but his presence in the solo setting adds a particularly nice clarity to his work; much less of an overload leaving more time to really soak into the jam. "Pigeon Church" is one of his first\r\nrecordings since leaving his internship at Ecstatic Peace and moving up to rural Maccan, Nova Scotia. In a numbered edition of 100 tapes in 3 color silkscreened sleeves with tape labels and an insert." - 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.
