Rock Rewind: Fiona Apple “Criminal”

Happy Birthday to Fiona Apple. Not only does the alternative piano-rocker turn 37 today (Sept. 17), but this week also marks 17 years since her biggest hit single “Criminal” was released, garnering Apple a Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance, and catapulting her debut album Tidal to triple-Platinum sales. While “Criminal” ended up being Apple’s first (and so far, only) single to break the mainstream Top 40 in the […]

Fiona Apple Cusses Out Crowd for Talking, Storms Offstage

Like many musical artists, Fiona Apple doesn’t like it when people talk during her performance. But unlike many musical artists, apparently she’s unafraid to throw a fit when it happens—or more specifically, to tell the audience to “Shut the f**k up” and walk offstage. That’s apparently what happened Thursday night when Apple attempted to perform in front of a particularly talkative crowd at a Louis Vuitton fashion party in Tokyo. […]

Fiona Apple Releases Paul Thomas Anderson-Directed Video “Hot Knife”

It’s been a year since Fiona Apple released her latest record The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw And Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do. Since her tour last summer, we haven’t heard much from her, but I’d be surprised if her newly-released video of “Hot Knife”, directed by filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson (The Master, Magnolia), doesn’t renew interest in the […]

Indie Music Must-Listens of 2012

It’s that time of year again, when we look back at the past year and prepare for the coming one. 2012 was an inspiring year for indie/alternative acts; I don’t know about you, but I found personal favorites in many different musical styles and genres. The thing about indie music is that it’s nearly impossible to make a claim as to who is the best act, for the simple reason […]

Fiona Apple’s “The Idler Wheel…”: Well Worth the Wait

Epic (2012)

The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More than Ropes Will Ever Do. It’s a long title for an album (well, maybe not for Fiona Apple, but still). And we’ve been waiting an even longer time for the album to come out (seven years, specifically). But on my first listen, I can tell you most emphatically—it was worth the wait. […]

UPDATE: Fiona Apple Adds New Dates to Summer Tour

The news keeps getting better for Fiona Apple fans; apparently, popular demand is pushing her to broaden her reach this summer. Where previously Apple’s announced summer tour (in support of her new album) was only to include 8 cities, the Apple camp now reports that the tour will include 27 cities across North America. Apple has been mostly reclusive over the past several years, rarely performing live outside of the […]

More Details Emerge on Fiona Apple’s New Release

For whatever reason, singer/songwriter Fiona Apple has been fairly elusive during the past several years, rarely performing live (and then only around L.A.). Perhaps that’s why there’s so much buzz surrounding her upcoming release The Idler Wheel…, due to drop June 26—and why her recent live appearance at SXSW (during which she played three songs from the album) apparently drew the attention of the entire music community. The new album’s full title […]
