Throughout the past week, preparing for her first album in 8 FUCKING YEARS, I have been listening to all of her albums through once again, fully immersing myself in the quaint vignettes of her past. "Fetch the Bolt Cutters" is nothing different, albeit still invigorating, endlessly creative, and cleverly zany. Syncopated piano arpeggios and drum fills are still very prevalent, calling back to her past release "The Idler Wheel"... but this time, the entirety of the record exhibits a kind-of idealistic self-awareness. She KNOWS that she's still delivering some of the best music ever, she IS aware that she sounds like an angel, and she CARES about this awe-inspiring legacy that she will be leaving behind.
FAV TRACKS: all of them!
