Night-People presents a very fine split LP by little known Australian bands, Melbournes PEAK TWINS and SCOTT AND CHARLENE'S WEDDING, who have recently relocated to NYC. This is a co-release with Aussie label Bedroom Suck our friends out of Brisbane and is the first in a string of co-released splits representing some of Australias best bands highlighting the distinct artistic atmopshere and friendships that have made Australian underground music so vibrant right now. Melbourne duo Peak Twins (who share members with KITCHENS FLOOR, BITCH PREFECT, TERRIBLE TRUTHS, etc.) ride the jams and compose their music with utmost attention to well played pop hooks, somber sublte psychedlics, and a general downer dissposition that never gets to heavy but lets the light shine through onto the 60s psych pop flavored jangle and shamble of their great songs. Scott and Charlene's Wedding (who share members with PANEL OF JUDGES) have a distinct punky jangly guitar pop aesthetic going that is distinctly Aussie and south hemipshere in its sound. They are good mates with rising indie rockers Twerps and have some shared influences but where Twerps keep it a bit more chill and mopey Scott and Charlene's let the angst and grit stick out more. Perfect tunes for dreamy summertime days. - Night People.
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.
