Edition of 240. 12-page full-color booklet. "The first release on Discreet Music and the 6th album from Arv & Miljö. Mainly recorded during the easter holiday 2020 and the coming weeks, Himmelsvind takes us back to the spring time, where as the previous album Svensk Sommar I Stilla Frid (Omlott Records, 2018) explored the Swedish summer. While sonically a continuation of the ambience and new age gloom of Svensk Sommar, the general tone on Himmelsvind is somewhat heavier and more nostalgic. The majestic take on romanticized kosmische music is still in focus, but with a more extensive use of field recordings, samples and tape loops. Stretching out on a field of fresh wood anemones, the 7 tracks captures the essence of that magical period of time of the early blooming flowers, distant log splitters and lawn movers, the first sign of the street sweepers (you may have had to be a skateboarder to truly appreciate that feeling and smell though), hotdogs from a tin can at the bonfire, the humming blackbirds... The creator casually namedropped Anna Själv Tredje and Ralph Lundsten as influences the last time around, Himmelsvind could be a cocktail of the past infused with an unhealthy obsession with stuff like Joanna Brouk, Tangerine Dream (Underwater Sunlight) and Albergo Intergalattico Spaziale, though still firmly rooted in the brash contemporary Gothenburg no-fi DIY culture/bunch of lifers. Featuring guest appearances from Elin Engström and Jon Collin, both on guitar. Mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi." - Discreet Music.
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.
