RYLANDER, HENRIK - Fran En Obestamd Plats I Rummet
Originally released on CD in 1998. Like a message in a bottle, carried round by the ocean streams for decades, Henrik Rylanders album Från En Obestämd Plats I Rummet has floated around in the space of Swedish underground music. Höga Nord Rekords pulls the cork and unfolds the message that is a piece of music that was ahead of its time, sounding now" 20 years after its first release in the late nineties. This album is a well-kept secret even for the most initiated music lovers in Sweden. The music, influenced by Flying Saucer Attack and other reverb/distortion drenched acts from the early nineties, Harmonia, and some of Kraftwerks earlier works and minimalism, still sounds fresh. Rylander, a member of legendary acts such as Union Carbide Productions and The Skull Defekts, has been pushing the envelope for electronic music, varying between ambient and noise. Rylanders solo works could be described as sophisticated music and Från En Obestämd Plats I Rummet combines the sophisticated sides with his band-oriented works that hold another kind of tension. This record is the first release on the sub label Höga Nord Arkiv on which releases from the past, that havent got as much attention as they deserve, get re-released in an appropriate context." - Hoga Nord
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.
