180g Vinyl Double LP Reissue of 2004 Album!

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 Beatles-esque melodies led to some of the most beautifully orchestrated pop of the last decade

From a Basement on the Hill was Smith's final recording and finds him returning to an edgier, guitar-driven sound, alongside his trademark heart-rending balladry. From a Basement on the Hill was originally released on October 19, 2004 on ANTIRecords and is now proudly re-issued by Kill Rock Stars--now home of all of Elliott's indie releases.

"Like the best of his music, From a Basement on the Hill is comforting in its sadness; it's empathetic, not alienating. Given Smith's tragic fate, it also sadly seems like a summation of his work. All of his trademarks are here -- his soft, sad voice, a fixation on '60s pop, a warm sense of melancholy -- delivered in a strong set of songs that stands among his best." -Stephen Thomas Erlewine, allmusic.com
