‘Staggers and Rise’ is the first single from Small Houses‘ forthcoming album, Still Talk; Second City (due out in February), and, well, it is fantastic. The track finds Jeremy Quentin rocking a bit more freely than he did on last year’s superb Exactly Where You Wanted To Be, though under that looser exterior he’s still delivering lines and turning phrases in that urgent, worn way that makes him such a compelling songwriter. I absolutely cannot wait for this album. Enjoy.
Bonus: Here’s a couple live videos of a few other (also very terrific) cuts from the forthcoming album.
