METAL ROUGE - Soft Erase

"It's 2013 and although some people would like to tell you that the party is just beginning, the truth is that its been over for quite some time. Protest music exists only as a form of personal ritual, hedonism is the only exorcism, artists stifle internal impulses in pursuit of career mobility. On Soft Erase Metal Rouge present a solemn meditation on contemporary societys willingness to accept what many before have fought to stop. Soft Erase is a collection of monochromatic machine-pulses ridden into the blank heart of single-take live excursions, a haze of modulated delay and de-synchronized loops, of strings hit endlessly in the hope that meaning may appear... Ritual chants give way to berserk guitar overload...dark vamping leads from nowhere to nowhere burning negation and dismissal as righteous fuel...hazy prayers for rain spill out in the merciless desert heat unspooling into an extended fake-kraut meditation featuring Giles Miller on a beautifully unhurried alto sax.\r\nCover art based on the censored art of Italian street artist Blu. Recorded at Ascension Ashram 2011-2012. Mixed by Sean McCann, mastered by James Plotkin. Edition of 300". - Emerald Cocoon.

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.
