Minneapolis-based quintet Household are teaming up with AP for an exclusive stream of their debut album, Time Spent. Produced by Defeater guitarist Jay Maas, the effort defies heavy music’s current status quo by succinctly covering a vast array of ground. From robust, hardcore-induced riffage to quaint, raw melodies, Time Spent impresses in unexpected-yet-inviting ways. Listen in full below and be sure to leave us a comment with your thoughts.
