Last summer La Blogotheque and the podcast My Favourite Elliott Smith Song collaborated with Francis Lung (aka Tom McClung of WU LYF) to put on “Everybody Cares”, a livestreamed Elliott Smith tribute concert for the benefit of LGBTQ+ charities. Now, the three forces have united again to pull together recorded covers of the late great songwriter that they have released as Everybody Cares: An Elliott Smith Compilation.
Out today, Everybody Cares features contributions from Marissa Nadler, Kevin Devine, Oceanator, Keep Dancing Inc, Christian Lee Hutson, Real Estate’s Martin Courtney and several more. It’s a worthwhile purchase, especially as 100% of proceeds are going to support LGBTQ+ rights charities such as AKT, The Audre Lorde Project and GIRES.
You can purchase the compilation over on Bandcamp for $7 (or more).
