Inspired by Coleridges opium-induced reverie, -¢‚Ǩ-ìKubla Khan,-¢‚Ǩ¬ù Nedelle Torrisi named her band Paradise to evoke a perfect place,-¢‚Ǩ¬®the opposite of hell-¢‚Ǩ‚Äù a place where, as the poem describes, a person exists in perfect harmony with their creativity. -¢‚Ǩ¬®Torrisis Paradise is a place of innocence before cynicism, one where love is still king. Her music embraces romantic sentiments -¢‚Ǩ¬®and an intimate earnestness that invites listeners to abandon their own sense of self consciousness.In Paradises music, Torrisi writes love songs that long to fulfill the unfinished figures of a lovers fleeting thoughts and utterances. -¢‚Ǩ¬®In A Lovers Discourse, Roland Barthes wrote that The lover speaks in bundles-¢‚Ǩ¬¶but does not integrate these sentences-¢‚Ǩ¬®on a higher level-¢‚Ǩ¬¶but all together they make up the love story." -¢‚Ǩ¬®With Paradise, Torrisi weaves these unresolved emotions and stories into love songs.I Love Thousands Every Summer is Paradises first release.

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.
