TERRESTRIAL TONES - Oboroed / Circus Lives

"Terrestrial Tones are Eric Copeland and Dave Portner, two dedicated musicians who make their own sounds while on hiatus from their respective bands: Black Dice and Animal Collective. The Tones music was made to be played live through a huge stack of speakers yet listening to Oboroed in your own space is oddly relaxing as sound waves morph and sonic tapestries shift. This is noise but very deep noise minimally composed and direct sounding. Oboroed is slightly longer and more subdued, coming in almost like GAS and then shifting through different songs to a kaleidoscopic and epic effect. Circus Lives is more aggressive, particularly with the bass frequencies, with the cascading rhythms of the mid-range, and with the bold choice of samples. Oboroed / Circus Lives was recorded by the Tones at Terrestrial Home in November 2004 then mixed and mastered with Rusty Santos in January 2005. Although the lineage from Animal Collective and Black Dice can be faintly detected in the music, Oboroed / Circus Lives maps a different territory barely touched upon with their other bands. They present electronic music with a surprising new take." - UUnited Acoustic Recordings.

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.
