BAKER & GARETH DAVIS, AIDAN - Invisible Cities II

"Aidan Baker (Nadja, B/B/S) and bass clarinetist Gareth Davis continue their fruitful collaboration with Invisible Cities II, five new tracks of finest ambient/chamber jazz/subtle drones of a highly meditative quality. In 2018, the Canadian guitar player Aidan Baker and clarinetist Gareth Davis from Belgium released their duo debut Invisible Cities (KR 045LP) that surprised many by its quiet, even meditative quality. Davis had made himself a name in a wide range of fields, from the post rock of A-Sun Amissa or Oiseaux-Tempête, new music (Peter Ablinger, Bernhard Lang), or experimentation with the likes of Elliott Sharp, Merzbow, or Scanner, while Baker is mostly known for his drone/post-metal duo Nadja, but that's just one out of several steady projects (e.g. B/B/S with Andrea Belfi and Erik Skodvin aka Svarte Greiner) and a multitude of solo albums. On Invisible Cities, the duo explored the calmer side of things -- from chamber jazz to ambient/drone and back, giving much space and air to breathe to their respective instrument. Subtle guitar drones, sonore clarinet sounds, a sonic scenery of peacefulness, and meditative introspection --all this you'll also find on the new album Invisible Cities II which is an accomplished continuation and refinement of the duo's first collaborative effort from 2018. Recorded between 2018 and 2019 in Berlin and Amsterdam. Mastered and cut at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin by Kassian Troyer. 180 gram vinyl." - Karlrecords .

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.
