Song of the Day: “When It’s Morning” from Small Houses. Catch him today at Mittenfest!

Small Houses is Jeremy Quentin out in Michigan (my second home) and he is the driving force behind what is “Small Houses”.  Quentin creates acoustic folk-pop songs that follow the guidance of suburb life in Flint, Michigan.  Well, I’ll have to take his word for it…  I must say it doesn’t sound so bad in Flint, pun intended.  Seriously, his unique delivery and often hushed acoustics, he creates beautiful sounds that can be perfect for Sunday afternoons with warm coffee…or a live show…like at Woodruffs in Ypsilanti…

“When It’s Morning” – Small Houses, from 2010’s “Our Dusking Sound”
(purchase: iTunes, Amazon)

Small Houses also has contributed a track to In The Orchard Of Osiris which is a compilation of artists that span shoegaze, Midwestern indie-folk, experimental music or atmospheric post-rock compiled by Peter Richards (of the band Stargazer) and sequenced & mastered in Michigan as well.  It is quite a sonic project and can be purchased via the Bandcamp page.  Listen to the Small Houses contribution below:
