“Three jumpsuited workmen put the finishing touches on a new house for sale, but the radio says the housing market’s dead, so they take up residence themselves, putting on (and trading off) the roles of mom, pop and junior, and setting about the quotidian enterprise of constructing a home life – pausing along the way to bicker about attending a neighbor’s foreclosure party and to read aloud from the “great lost novel,” Desert of Hallways, which appears mysteriously on their doorstep. This new, all-singing post-identity politics glam-folk-pop melodrama is a treatise on the emotional economics of homes and houses, pondering the effects of the real estate crisis on the business of domesticity, and vice versa.” –Philadelphia City Paper,
