The album recorded during the historic Many Mansions Northwest States life adventure. Shane returned to the Whitehaus with this album and we all listened at the first Whitehaus Thanksgiving. The power of pacific coast mountains and forests loom. Spooky shamanic children, tender lullabyes, third eye cats of drone, ginger lentils w/ your bliss. Get lost in rabbit holes of sound and find your way home with sounds of folk hymns and community celebration. Includes tracks ‘Sun (Son)’, ‘Clouds’, ‘Wearer of Masks’, ‘Ghost Dance’, ‘Thank You’, ‘Fingers’, ‘Something’, ‘Gentle Soul’, ‘Untitled’, and ‘Farewell’.
Released as a CD-R in chipboard sleeve with photocopied art by Many Mansions. Earlier editions with CD printing. approx 200 made.

A country classic – limited handmade edition. Skinny dipping in some pond you’ve never been to, the bugs sound strange. Someone’s cooking bacon on the fire. What a pretty table cloth! A mass of cedar waxwings attacking highbush cranberries, through big speakers. I am hungry, and then I am not. Transmissions from New England’s apple orchards, sleeping when you talk. Songs, an instrument, a voice, and a moving life covering mountains, prairie, and both of America’s coasts. Character that is real.

After releasing Many Mansions 1, Many Mansions 2, and Many Mansions 3 pre-W.F.R, Shane makes his first release on Whitehaus an album showing his guitar-playing/songwriting side. But peel your eyes, cause this burger’s rare, only 20 copies ever released. Tune into one-man Mantra healing, philosophical spinnings, anthemic familial celebrations, toe-tappers, and truly trippy ‘tribal lunacy’. Shane shows off his more rarely seen anti-folk rooted humor and is revealed to be an eternal entertainer. Recorded in Many Mansion’s / Brian S. Ellis’ shared bedroom and other locations of The Whitehaus and using many of the fine voices of the ’07 hoot crew.

Foot Stompin? Check. Blasting out of what it was with the healthy sh-t. Trying to forget about jeans and kicks, trains and getting there late. Debbie used to sing cause he was sad. Made him feel like he was singing right into the earth. Right into some rotten ears. Then, it got heard. Now he just sing cause its what he do. Debbie’s songs sound like the ladder being kicked out and then you land in your grandfather’s armchair. Positive messages form a place that’s warmer than outside. Big heart with harmonies galore, some would be wisdom from the depth, some out twanging 7ths and open arms. Chants of friends and family. Daps for two wheels and plane tickets. Debbie and the Bullets want you to be happy. They want you to know it’s been done and yeah, it’s still gonna happen, but you got it. Sing along. Get with it.
