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 there will be at least 30!
• Confirmed artists thus far include: Laura Jane Grace (Against Me!), Xiu Xiu, Nels Cline w/ Yuka & Ches, Eyelids, Fruit Bats, Califone, MAITA, Shutups, TEKE::TEKE, Ryan Sollee (The Builders & the Butchers), Logan Lynn & Bitch, and there are so many more to come!
• You will automatically be notified via the email address you use when you place your order when a new song is added for download.
• The first single could not be more perfect. KRS alumnus Mary Lou Lord along with Mikaela Davis covers Elliott Smith's "Some Song."
• Next up we have Califone covering Family Swan originally by Mecca Normal.
"I absolutely fell in love with the Gossip after seeing them play for the first time at the Old Fire House in Redmond, Wa. During that show Beth Ditto actually went out in the crowd with the mic and I got to sing with her for 5 seconds, which is still a highlight of my life. Fire/Sign is my favorite song from my favorite Gossip album called Movement. I feel like Beth is digging the deepest for the notes on this song and it just simply fucking rules!"
