Molly Tuttle’s fabulous guitar-playing and melodic vocal are both flawless and, seemingly, so effortless in this performance of ‘You Don’t Get Me High Anymore’. This Phantogram song is another perfectly-chosen cover from Tuttle, who is an expert at choosing the right source material to adapt to her style and voice. Tony Berg (Phoebe Bridgers, Andrew Bird) applies great skill to the production, weaving together Tuttle’s strong strum, fast finger-picking and voice with the backing from Iron & Wine. After the speedy, almost-spoken verse, the chorus feels dreamily ethereal when Tuttle sings: “Walk with me to the end // Stare with me into the abyss // Do you feel like letting go? // I wonder how far down it is.”
This single is taken from the new three-song EP ‘…but I’d rather be with you, too’, which is a follow-up to Tuttle’s highly-regarded album of covers from last year. On these new interpretations of inspiring songs, we find Tuttle collaborating with high calibre collaborators; the others feature Nathaniel Rateliff and Madison Cunningham. Molly Tuttle is proving that she can turn her hand to anything and make any song her own. Enjoy.
