From A Basement On The Hill
Elliott Smith

Elliott Smith has been a patron saint of the indie scene since his days helming Portland heroes Heatmiser. As a solo artist, Smith led a revolution of home four-trackers, from Beck to Cat Power, out of the bedroom and into the studio, where Smith's fondness for Beatlesque melody led to some of the most beautifully orchestrated pop of the last decade. from a basement on the hill is Smith's final recording and finds Smith returning to an edgier, guitar-driven sound, alongside his trademark heart-rending balladry.

Elliott Has Left Us...

Since Smith's death we know that his heartache & existential woes were real.If anyone else had written "I can't prepare for death anymore than I already have" you'd just label it as angst.That it's so openly confessed in this album makes it one of the most confronting lines ever written.While this album does feature some of his most uplifting work,sometimes the emotional intensity can be a lot to take.but it's a beautiful album,Smith's delicacy & rawness displayed to full effect
