The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart – “China” (Tori Amos Cover)
The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart frontman Kip Berman has been pretty forthcoming with both demos and covers lately. Back in August, he unearthed a bunch of demos recorded for last year’s Days Of Abandon, and the band ended up re-recording one of them along with a couple of covers for the new EP Hell, which was released earlier this month. Now Berman’s given us a twofer — a demo and a cover! — in the form of a “simple home demo” version of Tori Amos’ 1992 Little Earthquakes single “China” that he just uploaded to Soundcloud. Listen below.
Earlier today, Berman tweeted this, which may have inspired the cover:
New @toriamos is really good. I guess when you're magnificently talented and a visionary, that doesn't go away after 25 years.
