Golden Lab

ACHER, CONNIE - For Giving

"Connie Acher is the songwriting pseudonym of NYC artist Melodie Provenzano. Known primarily for her hyper-realist paintings, which undermine her love of 20th Century detritus, her debut album for Golden Lab Records, For Giving, gives way to similar thought paths. Titles such as Treasure", "Rats" and "Precious" (with its repeated pay-off, "Someday well all be gone") tells stories of a young woman in early 21st Century New York City, which are at once banal and weighty. Her deadpan voice delivers sublime melodies over sauntering cadences of unadorned instrumentation - acoustic guitar, bass, drums, Casios, Crumars and their ilk - which reinforce a junkshop theme. Theyre everyday songs of love and loss - drab revenants of 20th Century ideals doomed to haunt us through our memory of promise. Stunning in their understatedness. they take us back to a simpler time. 180g vinyl with super heavyweight casebound tip-on jackets." - Golden Lab.

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.
