Finally got my hands on that Elliott Smith tribute we were talking about and it’s excellent. Sad and beautiful. Never heard Crosstide before, but a good way to get my attention is to cover one of my favorite Elliott songs.
Crosstide – “Angeles” (MP3 Link Expired)
The album will be released 2/7 on Expunged Records, a label so indie we can’t find its URL.
Decemberists, Helio Sequence and the Thermals also contribute tracks. (Thermals’ “Ballad Of Big Nothing” was recorded by Elliott’s ex-girlfriend Joanna Boime).
