With a name borrowed from the journal of wholesome living habits and literary good taste, Good Housekeeping plays music that is both good and good for you. Displaying an adventurous use of layered atmospheres and breezy, ethereal melodies, this Boulder outfit's sound mates kraut-rock drone with the loungey pop pioneered by Stereolab and High Llamas, gently blending in touches of dream pop and the ambitious French folk music of Françoise Hardy. The band's songs conjure images of late nights in late spring spent sharing beautiful dreams with friends under the stars. At the same time, there's a sensuous duskiness to Good Housekeeping (due at the Larimer Lounge on Thursday, July 3) that grounds its otherwise fanciful imaginativeness.
