LES CONVERSIONS - Cassette

"FTR is tickled pink to present the second album in the Drowned Land series, a group of recordings selected by Jason Meagher from recordings made at his Black Dirt Studio. Les Conversions are the trio of Dave Shuford, Pat Murano, and Jason himself, three musicians first recognized for their work with the legendary No Neck Blues Band. Their first two LPs, Les Conversions (KEL 015LP, 2013) and Snowwhite (Holidays Records, 2013) were recorded during a single 2011 session and both brim with long form no rules brain fucking that is damn hard to put your finger on. Suffice to say that of all the countless projects associated with NNCK, Les Conversions are in some ways the closest to tapping the same endlessly fluxible root. The session for Cassette went down in 2017. Pat mixed the album, and Jason released it on his Microdose tape label in an edition of 20 or so. Nice to know it will now get a few more ears stuck to its shimmering curves, because the music on Cassette is full flowing freakery. As Jason says, 'We consider this, not paisley swirly doo-dah, to be psychedelic music.' And it's hard to argue with that while the two sidelong tracks crawl under your skin and begin broadcasting weird signals to your brain. There are riffs and pulses present throughout the music, but there is also a sense of true freedom that is beholden to none of the usual form-anchors. Making this one of the nicest soundtracks for hallucinogenic shuffling I've heard in a dog's age. Just what the doctor ordered!" --Byron Coley, 2020 Co-released with Drowned Lands.

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.
