Album Review: Fiona Apple – Fetch The Bolt Cutters

Posted on 27 Apr 2020 at 8:04am

Most established artists are permitted some kind of token radicalism.

Whether it’s the plight of the Nepalese, the orangutan’s loss of natural habit or global warming, they’re not afraid to express their shock and anger that practice x is still taking place in a supposedly civilised world. We tolerate this vanity because we love our stars, despite the obvious positions of privilege they harbour them in. We know that their outrage is not ours, but we forgive them.

Fiona Apple, however, represents something profoundly different: the daughter of a former Broadway actress, she grew up in Manhattan, later moving to California before she was discovered miraculously after throwing a few songs together on a first demo tape. Released in 1996, her debut album Tidal sold almost three million copies in the post Jagged Little Pill-era, and a seventeen year old Apple was thrust into a limelight in which her complicated and sometimes abrasive manner was cynically used as a marketing tool.

Her relationship with the outside world had good reason to be vexed: as a twelve-year-old she’d been raped on the stairwell of her New York apartment building and, decades before the #MeToo movement found a voice for women traumatised by abuse, she struggled to be understood or empathised with. At the 1997 MTV Music Awards she assailed the crowd, spitting out ,“this world is bulls**t’, one of a number of career-intolerant public outbursts.

Now older but wiser only on her own terms, Fetch The Bolt Cutters is the singer’s fifth album, recorded at her home in Venice Beach. Completely unfiltered, it is a body of work that combines soul baring honesty with a raucous power for musical invention and scalpel-edged lyricism.

Review: Fiona Apple – ‘The Idler Wheel…’

Posted on 19 Jun 2012 at 10:35am

She was introduced to the world back in the mid-90s through her profound voice and strong personality, arousing our deepest feelings and persuading us to take her side on every song.

After a long interval since the release of her last studio album in 2005, Fiona Apple passionately returns with new material that reminds us of old yellowing photos and the creepy chords of a gloomy song.

Making use of her very own formula originally tested on the 1999 album ‘When The Pawn…‘, this wide-eyed beauty comes back with ‘The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do‘.
