2008 release repressed - new cover art and no longer gatefold. "Highly anticipated follow-up to the majestic Way Their Crept, Wide is another beautifully dazed float through wordless choral drones that touches on the early music of Hildegard Of Bingen and Palestrina as much as Popol Vuh, Two Daughters and Taj Mahal Travellers alongside hypnotic guitar lines that work the softest spears of flesh deep into your spine while illuminating imaginary frozen landscapes populated by pyramids of shimmering delay and melodies that you might well have dreamt of. Some of the tracks have a more dazed, avant-garage, almost Pink Floyd/Simply Saucer-esque guitar drone to them that wasnt quite so present on Way Their Crept and it adds a great psychedelic/Astronomy Domine feel to the wuzz of vocal tone. Grouper has collaborated with Jandek, Xiu Xiu, Ilyas Ahmed, Six Organs of Admittance, Jorge Behringer, Badgerlore, and others. This is the vinyl edition of the cd released on Free Porcupine Society." - Weird Forest.
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.
