"Daily Life are a two piece from Providence, RI. After several tapes on Unskilled Labor, the band (CF- vox/synth, Sakiko Mori - synth) decided to enter the studio with Jeff Zeigler (Philly studio wizard) and emerged with a sugar glazed classic of monstrous icy proportions. Necessary and Pathetic" sketches out a sputtering romantic vision replete with horny armies emerging from the darkness set to a lush trash strewn landscape equipped with sputtering drumbot rhythms. Croon power is set to 10 to ensure moist thongs. Vocals bring forth stories of aimless midnight wanderers, smarting from discipline, and lustful pilgrim rituals with the hard sting of the sunrise. This is not a lo-fidelity stab at synth-pop but a fully formed set of songs executed with maximum vision. After all the buildings fall and the survivors are wandering the wasteland scrounging for dogfood, there will be few truths, but do realize this: the few things of beauty and grandeur, such as Daily Lifes "Necessary Pathetic" will exist to instruct the human dog pack to a greater destiny. Stock the shelter with at least one copy." - Load write-up for "Necessary Pathetic". "..flexi features a different, earlier version of "My Time" than the "Necessary And Pathetic" LP version. The song "Daily Life" is previously unreleased. Pressing of 300 on clear vinyl." - Glass Coffin.
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.
