V/A - Whitehaus Family Record Family Record (Whitehaus Family Record, 2010)

Rene - Destination: Mars

If you live in/around Boston, you should already know who and what the Whitehaus in JP is. It's a big place with lots of people and they all make stuff. It's a record label. It's a place where super fun shows go down. It's like something you see in a movie that is the most awesome thing ever and you want so bad to be a part of it but you realize it's way too cool to ever happen in real life (aka Empire Records). Well, these kids made it happen and the world, or at the very least Boston, is better for it.

The Whitehaus Family Record put out a 2xlp compilation, the Family Record. Clever, right? 27 songs, all different bands, all different styles, and one single cohesive mindset. Yes Wave.

This comp is full of the greatest non-noise Boston has to offer. Unnerving spoken word, dusty Americana, warped bedroom pop, whole hearted folk, tropical drone, expansion psych, hand clapping hootenannies, electro hip hop, delicate guitars, chilled out dance jams, intimate angel choirs, fiddles & banjos, Casios & drum machines, 100% FUN

I've given lots of love to these bands in the past so you should recognize plenty of the names on here. Many Mansions, Morgan Shaker, Prince Rama Of Ayodhya, Turtle Ambulance, Truman Peyote, Manners, The Needy Visions, The Great Valley, and Peace, Loving are the ones you should know. And love. And that means the other 18 bands are in great company and you'll instinctively open your heart and ears to them. The official release date is March 20, aka Blastfest 3!
