First time Fiona Apple poster, long time Fiona Apple fan.
I can’t really articulate why I’m so drawn to her music. True, I’m into a lot of alt chick rock (Fiest, Alanis Morrisette to name a few) but Fiona is something else.
Her melodies are beautiful, but after you listen to the songs a few times because you (almost selfishly?) like the way they sound, all of the sudden you start to catch snippets of lyrics and once you flip the switch to listen to the words, not the music, it’s a totally different and incredible experience.
NY Mag just posted a rather lengthy piece about Fiona Apple, which is amazing because she’s not super into press or publicity but here’s what I learned from Fiona Apple today.
If you do anything today, listen to the first single off Fiona’s soon to be released next album. If you do two things, take half an hour, grab a latte and read this great article from New York Magazine.
