Holy shit! It’s a Fiona Apple quote that talks about her music and not her gaunt skeletal emotional femininity! WE’VE GOT A MAVERICK HERE, FOLKS.
(There’s great stuff elsewhere in here, too. This is the first major indicator that it’ll be forthcoming.)
This makes me want to listen to Fiona Apple’s music but to claim that ‘fusing jazz and the old standards with a dose of post-sixties singer-songwriter’ gives her a ‘unique musical DNA’ is an unconvincing claim. Rickie Lee Jones, for one example, does that as well.
