Brooklyn's Household made of 2011's more underheard albums, Items, that recalls the nervy post-punk of Liliput, Delta 5, and Girls at Our Best, or more currently Grass Widow or Deep Time. The album was produced by Andrew Raposo of Midnight Magic and you can stream the whole thing below.
Household have a few shows coming up. They'll play this Friday (11/30) at the WBAR "Goth Cruise" which isn't actually on a boat but at Diana Event Oval (3009 Broadway @ 117th) at Barnard College. The show is headlined by James Chance & the Contortions, with Household's pals Midnight Magic playing as well. The show is free and open to the public and more info is here. Household will also play Glasslands on December 12 which is the "A Mr. Dream Christmas" party that also features Alan Watts (tickets); and will open for Hospitality's Bowery Ballroom show on January 10 (rescheduled from Hurricane Sandy blackout week) and replace TEEN on the bill. Tickets are still available.
Meanwhile, Midnight Magic just released their debut album, Walking The Midnight Streets, via PledgeMusic and 10% of the purchase price goes to the Red Cross' Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. In addition to the WBAR goth cruise show, Midnight Magic will play The Barbary in Philadelphia on Saturday (12/1).
