Elliott Smith
High Times [MP3]
     

Buy at Kill Rock Stars Pre-order

New Moon 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.”—Kill Rock Stars [releasing 8 May 2007]

The Saturday Knights
45 [MP3]
     

Buy at iTunes Music Store

“The Saturday Knights are a culmination of four freaks, a jaw-jacking combination of performing personalities: Storyteller and entertainer Tilson, who can tickle any lady’s funny bone; low-income yarn spinner and urban graffiti poet Barfly; indie rock and hip-hop mutli-instrumentalist B-Web, who brought together those genres on his joints for Olympia, Washington label K Records; and pumped up by the big beats and psychedelic turntable-art of DJ Suspence.”—Light in the Attic Records

Tarwater
