"Nancy Garcia is among the most galvanizing and evocative provocateurs in the current underground strata of New York multi-media art. Coming from a fully realized performance background Garcia translates the experience to her compositions and delivers Be The Climb, her solo debut for Ecstatic Peace. The album is part of a new project called I need more, which is comprised of an online video, a live performance, and the album. While the project's components can function independently, together they illuminate one another and produce a single, overarching choreography. The online video can be found on YouTube. Utilizing a confidence and strength of personality rarely scene in the hidden gestures and pretences of the avant-garde, Garcia has effectively created an album diverse enough to conquer genre restrictions. Guitars, voice, electronics and percussion are unified by the force of her charisma and deep understanding of 'audience.' Having spent years touring and recording with Monotract, alongside Carlos Giffoni and Roger Rimada as well as working with the Laundry Room Squelchers and performing alongside Arthur Doyle back in the Cooler days of NYC, Be the Climb shows a culmination of process, noise, melodies, and songs." - Ecstatic Peace.
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.
