Fiona Apple w/ Blake Mills

Music

If someone, anybody, asks Fiona Apple one more time about that long title of her latest album, The Idler Wheel…, she’ll flip. In a recent and revealing New York Magazine article, the reclusive singer explained how the idler wheel “has a big impact on whatever machine it’s in, but it just looks like it’s doing nothing, sitting and taking in everything.” That analogy could explain the singer’s past decade of indulgent creativity (she has only released two long players), or it could explain the response to The Idler Wheel…, an effort that’s been unanimously praised by critics and Fiona fans alike. The mysterious genius brings her extraordinary machine to the Fillmore this Sunday. Arrive early; opening act Blake Mills (and fellow Venice resident) is worth your ticket price: the 25-year-old virtuoso has been compared — suitably — to Ry Cooder, Jon Brion, Beck, and Elliot Smith.
