Kill Rock Stars is very excited to announce that on April 6th, 2010 we will be adding Elliott Smith's Roman Candle and From a Basement on the Hill records to our catalog... Roman Candle has been remastered for the re-release by Larry Crane, editor of Tape Op Magazine and archivist for Elliott's family... Kill Rock Stars will also be releasing Roman Candle on vinyl for the first time in the U.S. From a Basement on the Hill was released posthumously in 2004 on ANTI- records. With the addition of these two records Kill Rock Stars is now the home for all of Elliott Smith's independent releases: Roman Candle, Elliott Smith, Either/Or, From a Basement on the Hill, and New Moon.Download it above! Buy Elliott Smith albums which are now on sale at KRS.
To celebrate the addition of these amazing records KRS are giving away a free, previously unreleased song entitled "Cecilia/Amanda". It was recorded at Jackpot! Recording Studio in 1997 by Larry Crane. An earlier version of this song was initially written and recorded by Elliott's high school band, Stranger Than Fiction, and was known as "Time is Ours Now". "Cecilia/Amanda" is a reworking of that song with almost completely different lyrics.
