Thumpin beats and dizzying electronic samples by Boston’s youthful electronics trio, when they were still any of those things. But TP is still the hardest working-out group in show business, and this albums got sophistication written all over it. Well crafted club bumpers and electricity storms soak right through to your skin and you never want to dry off. Truly original music. Keep this on rotation, hope you got one, ’cause Truman Peyote will without a doubt be in the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame before you blink. First of three Truman albums to be released on Whitehaus Family Record. We love these guys!
Released on CD-R with photocopied artwork by Truman Peyote. CDs were spray painted in psychedelic array. Edition of approx 50.

The first and only solo album to date by the talented Kate Lee (of Gracious Calamity, Life Adventure, Peace,Loving, and many more!). Whatever Whatever is a visual collage of sound waves. It was born in the center of a mound of dough, kneaded into form by knuckles and elbows. Risen by the sun, baked by the sun. The smell is of yeast happily gobbling the sugars around itself. The sound is of gliadin and glutenin dancing their magic dance and assembling themselves orderly into graphs. but don’t take my word for it,
First edition tapes were released in a series of 5 with handmade collage artwork by Kate Lee. Second edition tapes were released in jean fabric cases with screenprinted virus art by Kate Lee. CDRs were released in chipboard sleeve with virus artwork by Kate Lee watercolored by Kate + others

Avi Jacob’s idiosyncratic folk/gospel-roots stylings are undeniably charming. This album was recorded in an empty church and you can def’ hear the penance and redemption of souls all around you. Avi came to the Whitehaus via his incredible performances at the hoots and is now and will always be a close Whitehaus family brother! Relocated down to Charleston, SC and still sonically thriving. We sugggest seeking out his incredibly soulful live performances. It’s hard to not laugh and cry along with Avi’s biting lyrics and stories.

In-haus sound engineer Shane Myrbeck (Cape Cod) and resident avant-composition wizard Emily Shisko (Long Beach, CA) teamed up to create this country-pop gem. A new-new classic for a great-great deal! Pop, rock, and civil war history stands on it’s head and undergoes aggressive poking and prodding from two extremely talented and innovative composers. This album will make you laugh, cry, and your head’s gonna fall off and you’re gonna wanna know more about the world than you can understand. Amazing quality recordings and vast sonic textures / orchestrations make this a must listen!

Expression from the bloody swamps of roots and veins that make up the life and brain of Brian S. Ellis. Homemade 4-track outsider-genius. 21-tracks of aggressive, haunting poetry from the original ‘mouth of the haus’. The first album of Brian’s poetry is a visionary classic. All your favorites like ‘Shopping Carts’, ‘Saturn’s Promises’, ‘Elegy for the Cassette Tape’, ‘Mayor of the 21st Century’, ‘Eleven to Seven’, ‘Self-Portrait’ and more! Hear weird tape/spoken word pieces later performed in Peace, Loving such as ”94 Ford Taurus’ and ‘My Name is Decade’. PLUS!
