Upset The Rhythm

SCREENSAVER - Clean Current/Repeats

"Clean Current" nods its head to likes of Snapper and '80s Flying Nun bands whilst "Repeats" owes its origins more to the progenitors of goth-rock. Naarm/Melbourne four-piece Screensaver is back with a double A-side 7" single just six-months after delivering their ten-track debut album Expressions Of Interest (UTR 141LP, 2021) on Upset the Rhythm (UK) and Heavy Machinery (AU) to positive international response. The album has also been a regular feature on Henry Rollin's KCRW Santa Monica radio show. The band return with two distinctly different tracks that extend upon the blend of post-punk, new wave, and synth-punk on their debut. Side A, "Clean Current" is a burst of high-energy: nervy guitars and groovy bass underpinned with krautrock drums and cosmic synth noise, overlayed with delay heavy vocals. "Repeats" is the flipside of the coin, a moody post-punk stomper, led by gritty sawtooth synth, chorus-soaked guitar, textural percussion, and soaring vocals. Lyrically, "Clean Current" spits out retorts aimed at the engulfing nature of anxiety whilst "Repeats" critiques the repetition of modern life, languishing human existence. Limited edition fluoro yellow vinyl." - Upset The Rhythm.

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.
