Morgan Lucas Schuldt appears ON THIS RECORDING in ode to Elliott Smith a la Billie Holiday. Sort of. An excerpt:

“Charles Wright ends one of his poems on a line that goes something like “. . . and God knees our necks to the ground.” Not that God figures conspicuously – or even copiously – into Elliott Smith’s songs; the knees keeping Smith’s ear to the ground were always addiction and depression.

Still, there’s a ferocity churning just under the lilting surfaces of his music that’s both bodily and spiritual. Smith’s songs speak almost always through the urgency of nothing more than a whisper, as if had he raised his voice any higher the songs would tremble apart in their playing.”

Get there now. Before it’s too late. And enjoy a song and a poem or two.
