Song of the day: Elyse/"Houses"

I discovered the Elyse song "Houses" while poring over the "Just Added" listings in Rhapsody recently. The song evokes memories of my wasted youth in a beaten-down Texas factory town where the only escape was a strong drink and a good song. Which, considering that I grew up in a whitebread town around Boston, is kind of messed up. But the song is that good. It sounds like a slice of late 1960s/early 1970s country rock, a la Gram Parsons or After the Gold Rush-era Neil Young (which I guess it should, given that Young delivers some searing guest guitar work). A highly recommended listen.
