"New album from Nad Spiro in a special vinyl edition co-released by Geometrik and Munster Records. In her new sonic fiction, Rosa Arruti, aka Nad Spiro, reveals an unusual dimension of her work, using just one guitar and four pedals on her sonic explorations through the lost quarries of Montjuïc, the legendary mountain of Barcelona. Armed just with her guitar, Spiro activates subterranean echoes, spectral loops, and secret vibrations on an initiation trip through invisible labyrinths. Enigmatically as ever, she invites us to go deep into the sound magma while dedicating each composition to one of the lost pedreres (quarries) of evocative name, hidden nowadays under a different urbanscape. The Spanish experimental pioneer Rosa Arruti -- an essential figure in Barcelona's cutting-edge music scene since the late '70s -- has worked for many years under the secretive alias Nad Spiro, a solo venture where she explores unfrequented audio zones in the outer peripheries of electronica, building her complex guitar sounds into a world of unique textures and sound fictions. Besides her albums on the prestigious Geometrik Records (the Spanish label of Esplendor Geométrico), her work has been released on imprints like Farpoint Recordings, Silent Records, Sloow Tapes, and on international compilations like Wire Magazine or Contemporary Music Review. Apart from taking part in cult bands in Barcelona's avant-garde underground (Psicópatas del Norte, TendreTembles, MohoChemie...), Rosa Arruti's extensive experience includes collaborations with artists like My Cat is An Alien, Kim Cascone, and Mark Beazley.
"A walk to the threshold of the underground: magma, liquid in solid state or solid in SONIC state. Esotronicmuzak. Or exo-exotica. That's what Nad Spiro sounds like, here and now. Some of the sounds she unleashes represent an audio invocation in ritual mode with (why not) Lynchian resonances, a Mondo Tulpa of suggestive and disturbing atmospheres: coups de guitar, wave vibrations, notes as psy triggers, activating again the soul of the mineral, exciting the rock, provoking again its infinite growth. Do re mi fa sol BLAST!! Strategic sounds for a strategic territory celebrated by Pedreres, a deriva across the haunted rock." --MK-Ibáñez" - Geometrik .
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.
