Elliott Smith Goes EDM on New Unreleased Tracks

(Radio.com) Over the years, unreleased Elliott Smith tracks have been found treasures celebrating his unique brand of folk. But the latest set of unearthed songs show a different side of Smith. An electronic side.

No, these weren't intended for an Elliott Smith album, they were for an EDM project Soul Coughing frontman, Michael Doughty was working on under the alias UUL.

According to Pitchfork, Smith recorded the vocals a cappella during a late '90s session with Doughty at L.A.'s Sunset Sound Factory. Smith was in town working on Good Will Hunting, which featured six tracks from the singer including the Oscar-nominated track "Miss Misery."

Doughty discovered the tape of Smith's vocals in November 2013, but told Pitchfork that the just released tracks, which he composed more recently, show the intended form he had planned for the songs.

One of the new songs, "The Record," a drum machine filled dance track, features lyrics that would eventually become Smith's "Bottle Up and Explode!," off his 1998 album, XO.

Another song, "Dogs," features a speaking introduction from Smith before he launches into the line, "I don't want to be here with your f***ing dogs.While the house jam "Burn (Aah F**k)" features a hook of Smith saying "ahh f***" over and over. Check out a stream here.
