Fiona Apple - Fetch the Bolt Cutters
Jul 15, 2020
in short: fiona Apple doesn’t even try to relate to the world, it’s the entire world that relates to her.

fiona Apple always has some hidden purpose to play on our minds // musical expectation:serving against sexism and patriarchy.

** first, a delving into how fiona Apple released this album **
she dropped her first album in ~ a decade while everyone is in international quarntine.
bolt cutters could’ve made , idk, record breaking indie sales from the hype alone;
fiona doesn’t care about money, sales, OR the fact that (when she received deserved attention from a recent new yorker profile) sony wanted her to wait extra months to release. for stupid record company reasons, and money, right ?

i stress this again: fiona WAITED until the right time; the early time presented itself (april’s international lockdown). METAphysically transporting the world to be in HER place: their own rooms (or confined spaces) she is so goddess that she WAITED until the right time to release the record

* the review*
fiona Apple with another oddball. at thirteen songs, ‘newspaper’ stands as the centerpiece of this percussive record. once that song clicks; the rest is irresistibly genius

okay, so, a character such as fiona is locked in a dark room for a LONG time. whether that room be for a tv show she helped soundtrack, her house, or her own mind.

she’s having creatures who harm her (dogs) free her - from said dark room - with things that were her old creatures (cutters, if you will) in the past (@ valentine’ 12)

the new representation of old villains, dogs, are literally featured throughout the album as her actual dogs, as she fills the album with light inside of darkness

so yeah, fiona ascended, AND SHE KNOWS THAT, thx for attending the hourly music rave. she’s the only musician i know that’s better w i t h o u t job brion. she has piano CHOPS and iconic phrasing. she delves into feminism extra so that’s a bonus

sometimes i was like ? fiona you’re so smart, but why did you say the same phrase 8 times in a row when you could’ve had 8 phrases ?... you know ? cuz fiona knows.

it adds up to something crazy by the end of a song: mathbreaking harmonies that someone as ascended as fiona can create
