Driving home tonight I heard 'Baby Britain' on my favorite radio station. Very good song, I'm downloading the vid on Youtube right now as I type.

Search YouTube for "Strange Parallel". It's a short film about Elliott and it's one of the weirdest/funniest things you'll ever see. Two words: "robot hand".

I joke. I'm listening to Andrew Bird as I type, so I'm really not one to talk in regards to the singer/songwriter thing.

Yesterday was Elliott's birthday, he would have been 39.

You can celebrate by downloading "Place Pigalle," an unreleased track that I believe was leaked on/around his birthday last year...

I never bothered with him, but now's as good as any, I suppose. What's recommended?

Either/Or for his more singer-songwriter work, and XO for his more band-oriented.

If you are actually a sad punk, you might dig his 1st and 2nd albums, Roman Candle and Elliott Smith (aka self-titled). They're often referred to as "folk-punk". But yeah, XO is usually viewed as his most accessible.
