Stars Rock Kill (Rock Stars)
We had so much fun last year with the Elliott Smith covers project that we've decided to expand the idea to encompass the entire Kill Rock Stars discography. 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.
• $20 now gets you all the singles for the entire year, and we're looking to hit at least 40 at this point!
• We're 30 tracks in and artists still to come include: Mirah, Laura Jane Grace (Against Me!), Berries, Anaïs Mitchell, James Toth, Laura Gibson, Lucy Lowis, Darren Hanlon & Shelley Short, and so many more!
• You will automatically be notified via the email address you use when you place your order when a new song is added for download.
"I can’t exactly remember the first time I heard The Raincoats but it was not long after I moved to Olympia, Washington in 1992. It’s funny to me now that I knew nothing about the Olympia music scene before arriving. I thought I was just going to college, but as it turned out, I had landed there right in the middle of a music revolution, for which I found myself quite unprepared. I hadn’t even begun to teach myself to play guitar yet. But what better lightening rod to spur me on than The Raincoats eponymous first album, plus a whole bunch of awesome feminist and queer bands which were springing up around me like so many punk-rock mushrooms in that spongy fertile northwest soil. Most of whom I’m pretty sure had started listened ardently to The Raincoats long before I did. I was soaking it all in, and Kill Rock Stars was right there, listening with a keen ear and pressing the records."
