ASO, AI - Umeromono Izen

"Released in collaboration with Pedal Records. Limited edition LP of 250 copies housed in a sturdy and heavy textured jacket. The music of this LP is comprised out of Asos first demo/home recordings dating back to 1997. The material predates her initial Umeromono" CDs contents. Unlike "Umeromono", the music she slowly breathes into being through her slow-motion like less is more aesthetic on this LP-set sounds even more fragile and desolate than her current recordings. This is partly due to the fact that Aso recorded the whole affair in her bedroom, deploying all the instruments herself and capturing the rudimentary gracefulness of her acid folk escapades directly to tape. The overall atmosphere has a strong low-fi fragrance hovering over it without ever compromising the rich musical texture Aso succeeds in conveying out of her stripped-to-the-bare minimum textural approach. The general result is one of organic and sincere beauty, embodying fragility reminiscent to a dew-covered spiders web. This quality gets even intensified by her soft-poetic angel-voiced whisperings and her fragile, fleeting like husky voice breathing out an erotic naivete that is lyrical as well as introverted, making it in its own humble way nearly a thing of perfection. She is destined to be one of the unsung queens of the female acid folk pantheon and this recording will be one of its Holy Grails. The disc is housed in a beautiful, heavy textured jacket, doing the music justice. Liner notes by Ishihara You (Stars, White Heaven). A beauty to behold and to hear. The record is a one time only limited pressing and will not be reissued on CD or any other format. So acting quickly may be a keyword here. The total pressing quantity is 250 copies, of which 125 copies are destined for the Japanese vinyl fetishist market. The remaining 125 copies are for foreign vinyl and female vocal addicts. These beauties will not be available for a long time, so you better act smoothly and quickly to secure yourself a copy. Extremely XXX limited one time only edition." - Tiliqua.

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.
