A stunning new documentary, Heaven Adores You, about the life and music of Elliott Smith, has just started making the festival rounds. I had the pleasure of privately screening the film this past week.
"I've always been a roots enthusiast really, it's always been based around the blues and folk music, so there are large areas of influence there. I didn't just want to just make a straight blues album."
It's not just the thought that counts; it's the overview of how each year we repeat the journey home. And on the return -- our jeans a little tighter, the déjà vu unpleasantries of travel; all a mere blip, as in the end we still do anything to come home to our loved ones.
