BURKETT, JOSHUA - If You Can't Wander the Waffle, Wonder in Drizzle

"On his new album 'If You Can't Wander The Waffle, Wonder I Drizzle', Joshua Burkett  takes hushed conversation and quietens them further. Listening to it is like reading under a blanket by candlelight. Yet an eerie buzz and hum cloaks the album, a lonesome spirit that's never comfortable or comforting.

Burkett is a pioneer of free folk alongside Tower Recordings, Dredd Foole, and Sunburned Hand Of The Man. This 'New Weird America' haze from from the early millennium took its cues from the Lorca-era of Tim Buckley, Incredible String Band's playful-yet-uncanny 
acoustics, the guitar deconstruction of Sonic Youth and John Fahey and other unclassifiable outsider musics.

Free folk is still at the heart of Burkett's music (and he has been at it for more then twenty years) but 'If You Can't Wander The Waffle' is stranger than he's ever been. The more you listen, the further away it bobs from you, jealously guarding it's secrets.

 Joshua Burkett's storytelling is rich, unique, oblique. It is psychedelic without all the technicolor trappings that word implies. It's myth, distortion, and mysticism.

Originally released in impossibly small quantities as a CDR. the album has been reworked and mastered, and is now a limited edition LP, with hand-painted, letter pressed covers. 1st edition of 300 copies."  - Mystra.

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.
