-¢‚Ǩ-ìVitrine is proud to announce Double Jupiter, common senses latest casualty from Newcastle-based project Posset. Joe Murray, the artist responsible for Posset, is a tireless advocate of what he terms the No Audience Underground, both through critical writings on uncommon sound in Radio Free Midwich and via his own output, which is a promiscuous celebration of collaboration, casual encounter and mistake as annunciation. The Posset back catalog offers prismatic forays into the outliers of recorded concussion. This latest cassette follows a seven inch released earlier in -¢‚ǨÀú16 on the singular IDDB imprint and offers private reconnaissance from similar territory. Double Jupiter is a strange bird of mottled plumage -telltale dictaphone, appropriation, musicality as estrangement, and phlegmatic evocations of Bob Cobbing. Sound poetry from the vantage point of languages collapse. Murray allows tapes physicality to dictate texture and taste, while voice locates a gentle humanity amidst the fray. Theres a sense of automatic composition as collation. Theres no common sense, but Murray maintains a more holistic sense across the two visionary sides of Double Jupiter. A pickled albatross of detained ecriture. The goose shat silver dollars and each one was pure gold. Sold out at source.-¢‚Ǩ¬ù - Vitrine.
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.
