I just want to feel everything

I have a special place in my heart for a handful of musicians. It’s the kind of special where they release a new album and you feel like you’ve heard it a million times already. Or where you’d drop everything to see them perform live and you get butterflies in your stomach before they come on stage. Fiona Apple is one of them. My college roommate and best friend introduced her to me back when I was 18 and I still get excited listening to any of her three albums. She recently released a single titled Every Single Night¬†and is her album comes out June 26th. The title?¬†The Idler Wheel is wiser than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipping Cords will serve you more than Ropes will ever do. Um, awesome. I’ve included a video of her live performance at SXSW earlier this year. Her vocal range, energy and facial expressions are wonderful. If you’re not familiar with any of her albums, check her out on Rdio. (Sorry if you don’t have an Rdio account…but you should.)
