Teens In Trouble / Desert Mambas Split EP
Danielle Howle - Current - Album Out
Santa Chiara: IMPORTED
Santa Chiara’s IMPORTED tells the story of their transatlantic romance and everything that followed: Leaving her home country and immigrating to the United States at 25, building a first home together with Ron Gallo in Nashville, and ultimately leaving that home for a new one in Philadelphia, where the couple now resides.
While IMPORTED is very much a product of D’Anzieri’s own personal experiences, its emotions are universal. Her songs of love and leaving home, of coming to a new place and planting new roots, of feeling like a stranger in a strange land, transcend the moment: And as she navigates the hurdles before her, her songs echo timeless questions about purpose and place; of human existence and the meaning of life itself.
Grrrl Gang - Spunky!
Spunky! is officially out on Green Island Music (IND), Trapped Animal Records (UK), Big Romantic Records (JP/THAI) and of course Kill Rock Stars (US)!
Grrrl Gang's music is a celebration of their collective roots and a testament to the power of pop music to connect people across cultures and borders. Their lyrics touch on themes such as feminism, mental health, and relationships with a raw honesty that speaks to a generation of young listeners. With their infectious energy, socially conscious lyrics, and unique sound, Grrrl Gang is poised to take the global music scene by storm and become a voice for a new generation.
Danielle Howle - Current
A lifelong artist and natural storyteller, Danielle Howle has lived a million lives in one, releasing well over a dozen studio albums in a twenty-five-year career that has traversed genres, styles, and cultures, encompassing everything from country-swamp-blues and jazz to folk, southern rock, indie, and Americana – all while endlessly exploring the depths of the human condition. She’s opened for legends like Bob Dylan and Bonnie Raitt, but Howle doesn’t focus on, nor does she live in the past: Her head and her heart are in the present as is made abundantly clear throughout her highly anticipated sixteenth studio album, Current.
Elliott Fullam - End Of Ways
Elliott Fullam's sophomore full-length End of Ways is a blend of home recordings as well as studio recordings which bring some extra depth within the songs to suit their somber settings.This is an indie/slowcore/acoustic album for fellow fans of Mazzy Star, Radiohead, Elliott Smith, Nick Drake, Big Thief, Crumb, and Alex G that explores childhood, dissociation, heartbreak and ultimately, survival.
Caleb Nichols - Let's Look Back
Caleb Nichols put himself on the map with Ramon, a critically acclaimed queer Beatles rock opera. Now, he’s tackling something of a more radical proposition — just 11 great songs, full stop. “It’s about the idea that you have to look back and confront stuff before you can move forward,” Nichols says. “It’s about vindication, and reintegration, and trusting yourself.”
“I’m not the good witch / I’m the bad one!” goes Nichols’ infectiously catchy refrain. But Let’s Look Back is most definitely a good one — one that will send fans of early 2000s indie rock, from The Shins to The Decemberists to Belle and Sebastian, to heaven.

30TH ANNIVERSARY DIGITAL COVERS SERIES
In 2020 we celebrated the 25th anniversary of the eponymous Elliott Smith album by inviting artists we admire to record covers of the songs on that album. We had so much fun with that project that we've decided for 2021 to celebrate our 30th anniversary by expanding the idea to encompass the entire Kill Rock Stars release history.
We've got so many amazing artists onboard already, including much of the current KRS roster, along with lots of folks from our extended family and even some new friends! We are so excited to celebrate the music community we've all grown up in, as well as the friends and fans we've made along the way. With that in mind, please welcome Stars Rock Kill (Rock Stars)
