"Debut record from Brooklyn-based group LYDSOD on the Nest Recordings label. Devoted to an ideology of non-stop recording, Ancient Age" is a psychedelic petri dish displaying the reassembled highlights of a year and a halfs worth of group improvisations . For each session a reel of tape is loaded onto the machine and the members embark on a journey led by the core unit of JZ Barrell on drums and Patrick Hambrecht on sampling keyboard. Guest players Alice Cohen, Zach Layton and Nick Anderson reflect the resulting axis of sound back at them, only to have it sampled again into a sonic hall of mirrors. "Ancient Age" contains the distilled essence of these 18 months of recordings, in one potent dose. Additional guest players include Hamish Kilgour (The Clean / Mad Scene), Linda Hagood (Double U / Smack Dab), Danny Tunick and Chris Talsness. One-time limited and numbered pressing of only 115 copies with full-color spraymounted covers." - Nest Recordings.
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.
