[PREMIER] Watch Prairie Rehab’s New Music Video for “Furious Love”

Hailed in 2013 as The Riverfront Times’ Best Alternative Country act, Prairie Rehab’s latest release, Houses, sways closer to pop-informed folk music than to the St. Louis region’s anointed, twangy genre.

For the band’s fifth album, Scott Swartz, John Baldus, and Ezequiel Valguarnera are still serving classic Western looks and demonstrating some classic country chops. But a measured, warm vocal performance by Lacie Williams, along with her skillful songwriting, invites comparisons to Canada’s Julie Doiron or Portland’s Laura Veirs, both far cries from Williams’ native Grayson County, Texas. Flourishes courtesy of other local luminaries (among them, harmonies from Devon Cahill and keyboard work from Christian Schaeffer) carve niches that help the genre-defying tracks on Houses fit together cohesively under one sonic roof.

Lacie Williams is one of the best lyricists in the city, turning the prosaic into the poetic with reverence and care. Perhaps when another unassuming talent floats into our orbit, it won’t take five records for many of us — this writer included — to pay attention.

Prairie Rehab releases Houses tomorrow at Schlafly Tap Room with Melody Den. To get the party started early, the band offered to premier a lovely music video that accompanies the album’s lead track, called “Furious Love,” on IWTAS. Enjoy it below and we’ll see ya out there:

    OK, I used to be Instagram-famous, too.

    If you’re like me, you have rummaged through Instagram, thinking “how do so many friggin people get so famous”?

    Picture this: You wake up early in the morning, even before your alarm does.

    You roll over in bed to check your phone.

    Hit the Instragram App.

    Wow, you think, Over 561 likes on one picture.

    You rise out of your bed, meander to the kitchen. You want a drink, so you place the kettle on for some tea, and check Instagram again.

    Bam! Another 63 likes.

    And here comes another message. It’s from some follower asking about your diet, and congratulating you on your third official month of eating healthy.

    A smile grows on your face as you see another message. This person emailed you to let you know she loves your posts.
