Gracious Calamity :: Carefree Since ´83

Whitehaus Family Record ~ Jamaica Plain, MA ~ March 5th 2011

These two lovely ladies finally get to see the release of their first full length. Kate Lee and Kit Wallach carry songs with their incredibly catchy and beautiful harmonies and surround them with guitar and ukelele. Their sweet words form hymns about things ranging from the holy exaltation of music to bubblegum and shoelaces. The girls are joined by other Whitehaus allstars: flute from Regina Peterson of The Points North, drums and things from Greg Beson of MANNERS, bass from Sam Potrykus of The Needy Visions and Ambitious Tugboat and Lord Jeff, and Shira Erlichman of Tiny Tornadoes.

This record was produced maybe even over a year ago at the Shop in Weymouth, MA by Jerry MacDonald. It was laid down using a vintage console, but once the whole thing had been recorded the console broke, trapping the tracks inside. The gang had to wait several months to find a replacement part. Just like their music, this record is product of patience and hope.
