Tall Texan

ALIEN EYELID - Bronze Star

"2nd pressing w/ periwinkle cover variation. Houston's Alien Eyelid follow up their previous Tall Texan release with stronger songs than ever and an expanded line-up. Featuring alumni of Lower Dens, Balaclavas, Buxton, and Hearts of Animals, 'Bronze Star' straddles the line between indie rock, country, and the country-tinged 'Workingman's Dead'-era Dead. Limited to 100 copies." - Tall Texan

"Houston’s Alien Eyelid skirt away from the garage/noise connotations of their moniker for an album that’s more in line with their southern rock surroundings. The first single from the band’s Tall Texan debut, Bronze Star, is a slow strummer kicking dirt off of it’s scuffed sneakers. The song’s steeped in an air of alt-country — not quite as rough roped as newcomers like Country Westerns or Loose Koozies, but splitting the difference between those two and something more plaintive like Bonny Doon. “4736 Jefferson” is a loner’s lament, winding down a few beers deep to wax nostalgic. The tune settles into a rumpled acceptance right up through the two-minute mark when the guitars begin to tear apart the peace the first half is trying to maintain. The song’s scars are fresh and fragrant." - Raven Sings The Blues

"Hailing from Houston, Alien Eyelid make Grateful Dead-ish psychedelic alt-country with a distinctly twangy Southern rock tinge." - Bandcamp New & Notable

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.
