Shadows Behind

There's something about Elliot Smith that gets under your skin. This expression he would appreciate.

Someone said his voice was like a spider's web. True. Someone said he played dirty basketball. Probably true.

Elliot was not only a master of turning folk music into something as heavy as Nirvana, but twisting an everyday expression into something sinister. And all's he did was use it in a song. His animus did the magick.

Trey wrote TWO songs about him, which are yet to be released. Though the spirit of initials E.S. shadow the darker songs, there's compassion that brings the sun out from behind the clouds.

Let your ears, and your heart, decide.
