Stream: Elliott Smith, “Punch and Judy” (Alternate Version)


August is Elliott Smith appreciation month over at Kill Rock Stars and the label will be releasing a series of reissues and unreleased tracks every week. Today, they posted what could only be called the "Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts" version of Either/Or's beloved "Punch and Judy." Though to be fair, Smith's voice is just a little too sweet and that guitar is just a little too intricate and lovely to sling any pejoratives its way. Stream the ambling version and a not-so-deviant take on "Alameda" below.
