Elliott Smith

Post by Kean » Thu Jan 15, 2004 10:46 pm

I know there are a few folk on this board that enjoy Elliott's stuff, so you might be interested in giving this a listen: A Tribute to Elliott Smith.

It's an hour long tribute, and is notable for the fact that Elliott's producers and friends discuss Elliott's life, and the future of his posthumous double-album, as well as a previously unreleased instrumental, "Tiny Time Machine."

Thanx from me as well

Thanx for posting Kean. Smith was a sweet artist. Sadly, more people talk about him now that he has passed then ever before. Kind of like Jeff Buckley. Anyhow, I can't wait for all of Smith's remaining materiel to surface.

P.s.
"Needle in the Hay", The Royal Tenenbaums suicide attempt scene, case close.

I listen to Figure Eight a lot while I draw. It is one of the strongest albums I have ever heard, with so many great songs.... sigh...

Sad

This shocking death, was a sad moment for music lovers. It reminds me of Jeff Buckleys death.

Thanks for posting that. I'm just now getting into Smith's work. Really like Needle in the Hay and Alphabet Town. So yeah, I'm downloading this as I type. Thanks again.

Thanks for the link. It's been a hard time, with Johnny Cash leaving and now Elliot going so suddenlly. I also just learned that Spalding Gray, a wonderful NY monologist and actor, committed suicide several months ago. Seems he jumped into the East River and the police just found his body last week. Sad times.

Spalding Gray is dead?! Holy crap. Back in High School, I used to watch a bunch of his performances when they played them on Bravo. Man, everyone is dropping like flies... :(

MP3s of a live Elliott Smith performance in Brooklyn, NY on 2003-06-06. Also notable is the inclusion of "A Distorted Reality Is Now a Necessity to Be Free," the B-side to his last (?) seven-inch release in 2003. Definitely worth checking out, you folks-who-are-Elliott-fans.

Elliott Smith's new album, Songs from a Basement on a Hill is nearing completion.

http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/news/04-07/07.shtml

Pitchfork wrote:In an e-mail to Pitchfork, Charlie Ramirez, webmaster of the premiere Elliott Smith fansite Sweet Adeline, said that Smith had described the record to him personally as being similar to his work on Either/Or.
That's great, I've been listening to a lot of Either/Or this week... I dunno why, I just sort of gravitated to it.

Smith is almost always on constant rotation on my discman... I can't wait for this album to be released. I just hate knowing there won't be any more... :(
