the fiona apple record is tremendous. you don’t need me to tell you that. a thing I have always appreciated about her work is how singular it feels, but how universally it resonates

i have been sitting alone in my apartment for an entire month gradually becoming this crazy, feral, more fuck-it honest version of myself and when i look back on this time many years from now i already know the record i'll associate with it is Fiona Apple's Fetch the Bolt Cutters

Kind of doubt any sound will ever be as evocative for me as Fiona Apple’s singing voice

A recent interview with Apple in The New Yorker about ‘Fetch The Bolt Cutters’ — a title that was inspired by a line spoken by Gillian Anderson’s character in The Fall — revealed that Apple briefly considered using a sketch of Harvey Weinstein using his walker as the album artwork.
Late last month, Apple encouraged her fellow artists to accept all sync requests and donate the money to charity during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
