After seven long years away from the music business, Fiona Apple got back on the horse with 2012's The Idler Wheel
, a fierce and
poetic album that chews through the word "comeback" and spits it back out like venom. Her show with Blake Mills at Liberty Hall on Saturday night promises to be a dynamic show that you shouldn't miss if you're a fan.
But be prepared: The "Criminal" songstress is not one to sit back and let a distracted crowd ruin her set. Just over a month ago, she cursed a Tokyo audience
for its "rude" behavior, and just last week, she threw a heckler out of her show
Here's a new video for "Hot Knife" off of The Idler Wheel
. It's pretty intense.
Blake Mills is a talented folk singer and songwriter who toured with Fiona Apple as part of her band and as her opener during the original album-release tour last year. This new run of dates sees him hoisted into more of a "shared bill" position. He's seriously good - before taking to the road with his own solo album, Break Mirrors
, Mills was a very in-demand session guitarist in L.A.
This is an original Blake Mills tune off his 2010 debut called "It'll All Work Out."
