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. The power of pacific coast mountains and forests loom. Spooky shamanic children, tender lullabyes, third eye cats of drone, ginger lentils w/ your bliss. 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’.
Released as a CD-R in chipboard sleeve with photocopied art by Many Mansions. Earlier editions with CD printing. approx 200 made.
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.
