MusicThe Idler Wheel . . . Fiona Apple’s First Album in Seven Years!

It’s been a while since we last heard our beloved Fiona Apple out with a new album (seven years in fact) but today marks the day! For all of you Apple fans, it’s time to run out and grab the epically titled, The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do, or The Idler Wheel . . . for short.

When you listen to her newest single Every Single Night it only takes a second to realize that this fruitful beauty hasn’t lost a thing, especially not her affinity for a quirky-yet-sensual music video complete with octopus hat!

MusicGeek Chic: Rave On Buddy Holly!

Buddy Holly may have been the ultimate in geek chic.
 
By age 22 Buddy was at the top of his game and already a master of the pop/rock song. Just released on June 28th, “Rave On Buddy Holly” includes nineteen of his tunes re-mastered by contemporary artists including Florence + the Machine, Fiona Apple, Modest Mouse, Cee Lo Green and The Black Keys.
 
Say Wha?!!!
 
Yes, that’s right. If Buddy Holly were still alive, he’d be turning 75 this September; a perfect time to commemorate this forever young innovator. 
 
“The melodic joy and fierce independent streak at the core of his artistry is profoundly felt on Rave On Buddy Holly, a 19-song collection of indelible Holly covers by a rich assemblage of current musical visionaries and creative kindred spirits.”
