WFR012: Many Mansions: Holy Mountain Life Adventure Club (CD-R)

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.

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’.

WFR010: Lindsay Clark: Thistles (CD-R)

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.

Released as a CD-R in chipboard sleeve with photo-transfer thistle and hand-penned by Lindsay Clark. approx 50 made.

WFR007: Shane Don and The Field of Light: The Many and The One (CD-R)

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.

Released on CD-R in chipboard sleeve with photocopied art by Many Mansions. approx 20 made.

Are you bored enough to show up?
