WFR065: Gracious Calamity: Carefree Since ’83 (CD-R / digital)

Carefree Since ’83 is primarily about weather: an almanac of the human body as it absorbs, withstands, and opens to sea breezes, thunderstorms, heat, water, spring. Recorded to 2-inch tape in the coastal town of Weymouth, Massachusetts, the album crackles with glass, mosquitoes, voices of birds, voices of friends, wind-chimes, an old ship-to-shore radio microphone.

Released on CD-R in sewn fabric sleeves printed with artwork by Emilie Selden. Inside the fabric sleeve are chipboard sleeves designed and screenprinted by Gracious Calamity. In early pressings the CDs were printed with a boat image and the name of the band, later pressings were stamped with the name of the band.

WFR060: The Analog/Digital Debate (CD-R)

This is Haygun’s debut album on the Whitehaus Family Record, released in Summer of 2009. It is entirely self-produced except for the beat for “1994″ which was made by Jimmy Doorlocks. It was originally titled “Some Rap Songs and One Folk Song,” which is a blatantly accurate description. It has an inordinate volume of samples of Tom Cruise talking about Scientology/ masculinity. It also includes the studio version of Haygun’s popular poem “The Sound Guy’s Revenge.” All music was produced exclusively on an MPC 1000.

Released on CD-R in edition of 100.
