Fiona Apple – Fetch the Bolt Cutters
Ms. Fiona is as biting, sarcastic, raw as she’s ever been! We need a voice like hers in these times. Not just her husky vocal. But a sharp tongue, unflinching perspective. She’s another in a slew of artists who are taking the bull by the balls and giving them a mean twist. I’ve missed her and her brazenness. When people used to mock her for her unapologetic honesty and outlook on the world, now they’re lauding her for her ferocity. I’ve always been in love with her ferocious poetry, her muscular music. No frills. No questions. Just poetry set to the unshakable timbre and vibrato of this piano prodigy turned absolute musical shotgun!
