about

After taking on capitalism, consumer culture, and art-as-commodity in their last album, The Hathaway Family Plot returns with a collection of songs about the joys of homeownership. (Did you know that you too can own your own home with little to no money down?!)

And how better to express the fulfillment of building equity in your future than through the same sloppy, noisy, amateurish, immaturely provocative aesthetic you’ve come to know and trust from The Hathaway Family Plot?

The Hathaway Family Plot recommends listening to this album in place of those books on tape you’ve been using to inspire yourself to visualize and then achieve personal and financial success.

You can’t. Give up.

OH AND BY THE WAY: I've slightly edited "Couch" and "Home" because the vocals were always way too low in those songs. They're a little bit better here than they are elsewhere on the web.

Track Name: Couch
We sit on this couch every night
Sometimes I forget to talk to you,
ask how was your day.
Just another day of work,
never anything to mention.
Track Name: Home
The dog is crying to go outside.
I tell her to wait as she nervously licks the bedsheet.
I take my morning pills and feed the animals.
Morning traffic and NPR
And when it's music for pay,
I hate most of what I play
60 degrees and it's overcast,
a beautifully sad autumn day.
And I'm alone, and you're alone
at jobs we hate
when we should only be together.
The wind is blowing!
The leaves are falling!
At home tonight, red wine and a Sabres game,
the dog lies between us
all in silence.

This is our house
This is our life.
But it doesn't feel like our house (This is our house)
And it doesn't feel like our life (This is our life)

Tomorrow is another day.
