Show Post: In House #1465


Temperamental songstress Fiona Apple released her first album in six years this week, entitled Extraordinary Machine. Despite its "new" status, the album's history is already a long and tumultuous one, beginning with its original recording and production three years ago. After finishing the album with respected composer, instrumentalist and producer Jon Brion, Apple shelved all but two songs, unhappy with the overall sound. Earlier this year, the internet-leaked version 1 revealed itself to be full of the occasionally difficult, but melodic baroque-pop for which Brion has become known. Some time later, Apple re-recorded the album and tagged Mike Elizondo, late of names like Dr. Dre, Eminem, Sheryl Crow and Avril Lavigne, for production duties. The end result is decidedly more commercial, which more than one review has suggested doesn't exactly translate to "better." Some sources have even engaged in comparison reviews, pitting version 1.0 against version 2.0, side by side. Fiona Apple opens a U.S. tour in Portland in late November.

well anonymous, and you, too, melissa, good question.

it's wolf parade, from montreal. a slight correction-- issac brock produced their debut, "apologies to the queen mary," he's not actually in the band. a quick check of the blog archive shows that they were the focus on the september 26th show. thanks for listening.
