Tamar Aphek - Speed Trials - Elliott Smith cover

Tamar Aphek covers Elliott Smith's "Speed Trials"

"Speed Trials" is the track that led Tamar to Elliott Smith's music and Kill Rock Stars - sharing this cover for our 30th anniversary series feels kismet.

Tamar says, "I feel this song forces you to stop everything you’re doing and ask yourself 'why am I doing it?' In my performance, I wanted to give it another interpretation, namely to take it easy and just try to enjoy what you get in life and stop being so ambitious for a certain period of time.”
