Includes CD. "Sleep Safari is the new album from indie electronic artist Nick Nicely. The first single "Ghostdream", labeled as "Absolutely gorgeous" and "Euphoria" by BBC6, heralds new horizons for psych legend. Sleep Safari goes further into electronics while continuing the artists psychedelic journey, creating a unique pop juxtaposition. Theres also all the usual twists and turns, tuneful inventions and abstractions so revered after Nicelys previous releases on Captured Tracks, Cherry Red, EMI, and Burger Records. Further to the success of "Ghostdream", with album release and gigs in addition to his forthcoming Hollywood soundtrack debut, 2017 will be quite a year for him. Nick has often looked beyond the obvious in matters electronic from early electro-psych fantasies like "DCT Dreams" (1981) and "Hilly Fields" (2012) through to his acclaimed second album, 2014s eerie epic Space Of A Second. "Utterly remarkable . . . profoundly psychedelic" --Clash Magazine. Tapete Records present the latest chapter in Nicks sonic journey. Sleep Safari is an homage to unconsciousness, lyrically exploring sleeps mysteries through a surrealist eye. It opens with the line "3am, you wake, the dream begins". Suddenly youre underwater, hold your psychic breath... its a Sleep Safari. Includes a remix by Grasscut." - Tapete.
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.
