Elliott Smith (allegedly) committed suicide in October 2003, leaving his fans to struggle with the loss of one of indie music’s most gifted musicians. He was nice enough to leave behind a massive catalog of work, but fans have still been clamoring for new material.
Good news: record label Kill Rock Stars announced plans to release a double disc of previously unreleased Smith material, believed to be recorded between 1995 and 1997. It’s expected to drop May 8 th. For now, take a look at a personal favorite track of mine, “Son Of Sam.”
