Former Whitehaus resident Greg Sun moved to Martha’s Vineyard, became a carpenter, still kicks out textured, subtle, dynamic tunes that are a pleasure to listen to. Do check out his website at sunofbees.com
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.
A double vinyl LP compilation of tracks from 26 artists associated with the Whitehaus in Jamaica Plain.
that summer you moved quickly. there was no time after work to go home before the show so you pack those boots in your bag in the morning when you left the new apartment, made a call during a cigarette break and scribbled an address, a part of town you don’t know but go alone anyway, all the streets look the same but you find it, from the outside it looks like no one’s home and at the bottom of the dark stairs you panic. you almost turn and run but you don’t and the door opens for your knock and there’s a smiling face on the other side…
seasons become other seasons and yet again and again, when you go shopping at the local grocer you know the cashier and tell the sweet boy how well he sang last night, you are location now, faces have become friends, friends become roommates, and front doors become memories. And there’s the stoop where you broke up with that guy from Brattleboro, there’s the porch where Austin taught you to juggle, there’s the parking lot where everybody plays communist soccer in the spring…
now under your skin a record is written of the electric stutterspit heartbeat of a place, made of movement and songs, made of history and fiction, and yes, it was written by everyone. Yes, the people all of them that live inside and outside and outside, you look like a giant. Better than Mount Rushmore. More like the river, standing to its feet, Yes, you can hear it. Can’t you hear it? The Sun is applauding… (Brian Stephen Ellis)
Grab a cup of mead, some energy crystals and huddle up next to your favorite goat for this festival of somber merriment. Two Voices is the finest coalescence of astral rock and renaissance folk by two modern day bards, Greg Sun (Manners) and Chris North (The Points North). This poppy lo-fi carousel weaves acoustic guitars through a meadow of instruments including flute, accordion, violin and cello, wrapping it all up nicely with magnetic tape at varying speeds.
Released on CD-R in chipboard sleeves with artwork by Greg Sun and Lenora Symczak
Crops is a recycling bin that splices together bits of music, spoken word, poetry from Brian S. Ellis and songs of Manners and Atomfoam. Sometimes tense and cacophonous, other times sparse and symphonious, this tape was made to be listened to with headphones – so grab your walkman and go.
Released on cassette tape with artwork by Greg Sun
A limited edition EP compiled for December 2008′s Whitehaus Family Wintour. The opening songs crackle cavernously and drip with loitering melodies, sounding both massive and minimal. They affect one with all the dazzling captivation of fire without the burn or pain. The meditations that follow are earthen patterns sounding out in tireless reiteration, disguised as the lulling caress of silence. These noises fill headphones like the sway of trees or a popping campfire.
Released on CD-R in chipboard sleeve with artwork by Greg Sun.

“Actually, what he really wants is for people to have fun, first and foremost himself. The title track to his fourth and most recent album “i get so drunk about songs about love” was recorded impromptu with friends after an afternoon of red wine. His friends began playing and he shouted “don’t stop!” and hit record, the lyrics crooned in ‘60s style falsetto and bass.”
