Even news of this fine LP had us thrilled, but it really is a quite remarkable album. An instant classic.
The Apple of 2020 is astonishing; as if she has returned to reinvent sound - the rhythms pleasing, but counter, and unusual. On the title track she half-sings over a makeshift orchestra of kitchen implements, dog bark and cat yowl.
The beat on 'Under the Table' has a seething back-and-forth pace; the extraordinary 'For Her' beds double Dutch skipping rope rhythms beneath a chorus of female voices. It's striking how intimate Apple's voice sounds here - half-conversational, half-self-mutters, allowing every scuff, breath and feral yelp.
She is at her most familiar on 'Ladies', hollering over a soulful backdrop, chewing her own voice like tobacco, then letting it take sweet, sudden flight. 'Fetch the Bolt Cutters' is full of visceral, jittery, wonderfully imperfect performances that make the album feel like a dream-like concert at Largo. It features contributions from David Garza, Sebastian Steinberg, and Amy Aileen Wood.
