Long Island rock band Moon Tooth Violent Grief Sessions is today, November 12, 2020 through Pure Noise Records. Live versions of both covers and original songs, the audio for the upcoming release was taken from their recent KNOTFEST.com premiered intimate acoustic event of the same name.
A stand out from the EP is the band’s cover of “Fast As You Can” by Fiona Apple. “I’ve wanted to cover ‘Fast As You Can’ from the moment I first heard it but the thing that really convinced me it had to happen was a live video that came as a bonus for the ‘Idler Wheel’ album. The chords for that verse riff always struck me as being very heavy and her vocal delivery is always so raw and in your face,” shares guitarist Nick Lee. “I originally wanted to do it as a loud, full-band Moon Tooth cover (which maybe can still happen, who knows?) but when we were talking about covers for the live acoustic session it was the perfect opportunity to give it a shot. The most fun part of preparing this acoustic set for me was improvising solos over that instrumental verse at the end.” Stream on YouTube.
