2013 release. "the cryptic vision of Circuit des Yeux becomes ever more formed with this minialbum. Whereas the oft solo Chicago-based Haley Fohr is backed with a tourlearned combo to push these three songs into maximal view then, off into obliteration. Yet, the focus remains Fohrs haunted, mournful melodies, where the edges of her voice twist toward inner conflict and white light aggression, and intricate feedback architecture of her guitar playing. In this near anthem rock mode the songs become a liberation from the cacophonous orchestrations fashioned throughout Symphone and Sirenum and the isolation of last years Portrait -- all full-lengths on the De Stijl label. The retelling of -¢‚Ǩ-ìIm On Fire-¢‚Ǩ¬ù and the new "Lithonia" are classic structures filtered through Fohrs Romantic spirit and an emotional weight not far from Catherine Ribeiro or Peter Jefferies. The B-side -¢‚Ǩ-ìHelen, You Bitch-¢‚Ǩ¬ù is a smudged, concrète-purposed solo that builds with drums and more guitar until the end. Recorded at the all analogue Magnetic South in Bloomington, Indiana, this 300 edition 10-inch is the studios first widespread release on its in-house label after previous titles from Apache Dropout, Learner Dancer and Tammar. 10" record housed inside of black and white cardstock foldover sleeve with b/w insert."- Magnetic South.
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.
