WFR077: WFRFRvol2 : Are You In Paradise? (LP)

I can no longer prolong the greatest moment of my life. I cannot afford to be afraid of the long silence. Of the after after. The people that populate my bedroom have become too real. My option is every door, every sun and mountain of night. Our options are in people. Honest voices are doors. I have stopped trying to control the narrative. To prescribe the reality of self. Not sleep until ending. Not sleep until climax. I am awake now. I am awake now. I will stop trying to wake up and I will walk out the door and I will see in a way that listens. This moment will be a kingdom of yes simply in the naming. It was always a choice. It was always a way of seeing. I am in Paradise.

Released on 12″ Vinyl LP with artwork by Lenora Symczak (front cover) and Morgan Shaker (back cover). 500 copies were pressed.

WFR072: Erich Haygun – Elsewise (CD-R / digital)

This entire collection of songs was produced, written and recorded in hotel rooms across the United States while Haygun was on tour with basketball’s losingest team, The Washington Generals. The music for each track represents one night in a given hotel room, with the entire process of sound creation, sequencing and recording live to 2-track being completed in a single session. Haygun then pieced together lyrics for each of those clips from the constant swirl of land and time coming through the bus window. “You don’t have to stay here, but you can’t go home

The original release of this CD-R included a limited edition of hotel room key cards, hand-labeled during Haygun’s tour with The Trotters and The Generals. Edition of approx 100.

WFR069: Con Tex – Everything in Con Tex (tape / CD-R / digital)

There are songs about capitalism, a song about the artistic process disguised as a parable about trash, and enough cosmic insight to fill a short novel.

Released originally on cassette in an edition of 25. Later released digitally and on CD-R in an edition of 25.
