Stream Heaven Adores You Soundtrack (Elliott Smith Rarities Collection)


Rarities collections are rarely rare. In Elliott Smith's case, we've already had to suffer through an "Introduction to" his work following on the heels of the encyclopedic "New Moon," which fused a lot uncollected tracks with some of his later work that cut damn close to the bone (see "Placeholder"). The soundtrack to Heaven Adores You -- "an intimate, meditative inquiry into the life and music of Elliott Smith (1969-2003). By threading the music of Elliott Smith through the dense, yet often isolating landscapes of the three major cities he lived in — Portland, New York City, Los Angeles — Heaven Adores You presents a visual journey and an earnest review of the singer’s prolific songwriting and the impact it continues to have on fans, friends, and fellow musicians" -- is much more in the vein of Kill Rock Stars release of alternate versions from Either/Or in 2012. Including a number of alternate versions of songs (including "Christian Brothers" rocked out by Smith while in his band Heatmiser), live tracks, and some tunes which appear to be sketches or trials. The documentary, by the way looks awesome, hook some WLFY peeps up with a screening!
