New on Rdio: Kill Rock Stars

Slim Moon wanted a way to put out music and spoken-word works, of both his and his friends’ creation, so he founded Kill Rock Stars. The unassuming beginnings of this artist-driven project have grown into the female-run Indie Label that carries the likes of influential singer-songwriter Elliot Smith, The Decemberists’ early albums, and Thao & Mirah’s just-released debut. You can read all about their evolution (including the origin of the Label’s name) on the Kill Rock Stars timeline while checking out their expansive list of artists on Rdio.
