Olde English Spelling Bee

PUSSYGUTT - Gathering Strengths

Third full-length release from this Boise, Idaho duo following two critically acclaimed efforts - the Sea Of Sand double-LP on OESB and She Hid Behind Her Veil CD on 20 Buck Spin. PussyGutt continue to develop their unique brand of doom soundtrack heaviness on Gathering Strengths, which features two side-long compositions titled Silence Within & Spirit Walker. Clarinets, violin, and cello are all prominent - lending this album even more of an avant-classical feel than previous efforts. The band calls this album an esoteric meditation on soul and nature and they cite Alvin Lucier, Henry Gorecki, and Arvo Part as primary influences for these recordings - along with the funeral doom of groups like Nortt, Catacombs, and Celestiial. Aquarius Records sums it up best in their review of the CD: This is some seriously sinister shit, sweeping and darkly cinematic, the soundtrack to the eventual collapse of the universe, the sound of dying stars, or of some long slumbering beast awakening after millennia... infused with a deep otherworldly beauty. Packaged in heavy duty covers silkscreened by Monoroid, limited and numbered edition of 550 copies, with glossy insert. - Olde English Spelling Bee.

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.
