Secret Eye

AVARUS - IV

LP only - 160 gram virgin vinyl, pressed in Czech Republic, direct\r\nmetal mastering, full-color labels and jackets, all-exclusive new jams\r\nlimited to 200 copies.\r\nAll-new exclusive Avarus! Fourth Secret Eye full-length and tenth\r\nrelease overall from this incredible Finnish band that pretty much\r\ndefines modern psychedelic kraut improv. Primitive, primal and tribal,\r\ndesolate and mournful, dreamy and pastoral, motorik and hypnotic.\r\nBuzzing, clattery, droning, stumbling Krautrock flecked with\r\nshimmering free-noise, avant ambience, delicate folk fuckery, and\r\nchaotic caveman psychedelic space rock.\r\nAvarus IV starts where the Rasvaaja LP ended. The IV, too, consists of\r\nTomas Regans careful high-quality recordings. On the IV Avarus makes\r\nand even longer dive in the warm and clear pond, into which the water\r\nis poured from both kraut and space rock, and from micro music and\r\nslapstick. The recording was made after the US tour, which guarantees\r\nthe firm harmony satisfying the most demanding listeners. The delicate\r\ntalent and the hilarious team spirit guarantee a recordful of\r\nheart-warming harmonies and surprising turns delighting an\r\nunprejudiced mind. The wondrous adult rock of Avarus is born from an\r\nuncompromising love for music. The finished recording deserved a\r\nfantastic cover, too. This in mind, the graphic visionaries Amanda\r\nV_ɬ§h_ɬ§m_ɬ§ki and Pauliina M_ɬ§kel_ɬ§ spent their summer holidays swimming,\r\ndrinking beer, and drawing their kaleidoscopic Davy Crockett epos\r\ninspired by music. - Secret Eye.

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.
