Let it never be dismissed as some quaint value. Sincerity is perhaps that final, graceful pirouette towards what the Spanish name duende _¢‚Ǩ‚Äù an absolute and utter possession, a force of severance from consciousness _¢‚Ǩ‚Äù having soul. Bow Ribbons_¢‚ǨÀú self-titled album is a musical testament to the sincerity of its two authors Pete and Willow.\r\nA powerful yet un-imposing union between guitar and voice, keys a unique presence that is indicative of Bow Ribbons as both multi-timbral and able minimalist. As alchemically elusive as it is\r\nself-confessing _¢‚Ǩ‚Äù these polarities are much like the sinuous phantoms that glide throughout Bow Ribbons songs. Guitars that bloom and may appear to trail away in despondency or as if following some other train of thought, return just as quickly to invoke the vocal melody and shudder with admittance that, _¢‚Ǩ_ìI know lately that Ive been cruel/\r\nI know lately Ive been mean, too._¢‚Ǩ¬ù The albums grand archaeological revelation, arcs with In Colors. Musical canyons into which Willow leads with lyrical wizardry, before dropping the listener into a\r\nfree-jazz quake amongst chants of _¢‚Ǩ_ìTo Be Love_¢‚Ǩ¬ù. The sashay of cymbals and fluency of horns invoke the cavernous waves that eventually roll back to where all things began _¢‚Ǩ‚Äù at the horizon.\r\nSongs that impart the listener to stretch out and challenge the inclination to fill the void with static are increasingly hard to come by. Bow Ribbons is timeless music, for it acknowledges what existed\r\nbefore the embellishments that held the greater half of a century and consequently our habitude in dressing up the song. This does not mean that their music lacks production or pause. The warmth and tonal breadth of Petes guitar work is rousing by way of its subtleties.\r\nThese songs remind us that space is not a listless vacuum, but instead what lies between is where the Bells Ring out, where the needle is thread through the fabric, where we are reminded to sigh, where we\r\nmight reflect on a notes absence. At the edge, before the great dip into the void, theres the sense that we are standing with our noses at the tip of a flame or the iciest frost. One might see a flash. One may listen and hear silence as though it was the very first time doing so. Its any number of these things that make Bow Ribbons stand out in noble eloquence. -Nicky Mao, December 2010\r\n\r\nBow Ribbons walks on each songs tightrope. Gracefully. Tenuously. But you will be the one floating at the end of a kite string; being pulled\r\nand flown - slowly then quickly - upwards, sideways and down. Captured by declarations of heartbreak, hopes and the endless strain and love of balancing on dreams. Their songs soulfully release the doves that bless our most intimate and musical hearts - so that in rejoice we may all sing, once again." -Hueso

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.
