Happy Bday Elliott Smith


To celebrate what would have been Elliott Smith 38th birthday (August 6), Kill Rock Stars is giving away free downloads of "Angel In The Snow" today.


Elliott Smith
New Moon, which came out May 8, 2007, was the first KRS release to chart #1 on the Billboard Charts (Indie), their highest debut on Billboard's Top 200 (coming in at #24), and the longest running KRS release on the Top 200 (six weeks).

The double album contains 24 songs recorded 1994-1997, a prolific time in Smith's career, when he recorded his self-titled album and Either/Or (both also released by Kill Rock Stars).

Arguably the most gifted song-writer of his generation, Elliott Smith produced a large body of work that includes five solo albums, as well as From a Basement on the Hill (2004), a collection of songs completed before his death in 2003. Like his other work, New Moon reflects the power of Smith's ability to integrate rich, melodic music with poetic, multi-layered lyrics.
