Sorry, I was absent for Tuesday’s Tunes last week. I have no excuse. I apologize.
This week I’m just going to focus on one thing.
The lovely Fiona Apple. She announced the title of her upcoming album.
The Idler Wheel is wiser than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipping Cords will serve you more than Ropes will ever do.
I wouldn’t expect anything else but amazing from her. I was first introduced to her when I was 16. I saw her on 120 Minutes. My weekly ritual was recording 120 Minutes every week, watching it throughout the week, taking notes on new artists. I had a rough time in high school. Fiona Apple really spoke to me.
And each album following just resinated inside me. It was as if they came out at just the right moment in my life that I needed a certain guidance. Sounds silly, but that girl really has a voice and I’ve been hearing it loud and clear for many years. And the announcement of her new album just sheds a light that I believe will never burn out.
Thank you, Miss Fiona. Keep singing. I’m listening, loud and clear. And so is Zalyn.
So, I will leave you with a few of my favorites by her. Although it’s pretty hard to narrow it down to just a few.
Never is a Promise makes me cry every time I hear it. Still.
