Fiona Apple/Damien Rice @ Central Park Summerstage 7/26/06

Someone please give Fiona a hug. While you’re at it, tell her it’s all gonna be alright. Because if you take her at her word on “On the Bound,” she believes that it isn’t. And if you’ve been ensnared by her tales of torment, on-stage breakdowns, and moments of raw genius over three-and-a-half albums, you’re… More »

Elvis Costello & Billie Joe Perform “Alison”

Cool clip (ok, half cool) from the Decades Rock Live tribute to Elvis Costello airing Friday on VH1 Classic.

Pantheon Awards

Wage Against The Machine

If you’re a serious Fiona Apple fan, you’ve already heard Extraordinary Machine — the original Jon Brion-produced one that leaked in February and the one that came out yesterday, re-recorded (save for two tracks) with Dr. Dre producer Mike Elizondo. Pitchfork’s Rob Mitchum (after rewriting his review, apparently) gives the former a 7.8, the latter… More »

Your Photoshopped Extraordinary Machines

Thanks to everyone who entered the Fiona Apple album cover Photoshop contest. Now that the entire album has leaked, maybe Sony will steal one of your Extraordinary Machines for the cover (it’s only fair). In the meantime, check out our fave entries, and shout out which you like best… More »

Extraordinary Machine Photoshop Contest

Hope you enjoyed those leaked Fiona Apple tracks. We all got a kick out of the Angelfire page that’s hosting them and its creative interpretation of the album title.

Whatever Happened To Fiona Apple? gets some love in an interesting MTV News piece. Jon Brion is pretty forthright about the situation with Sony. Is a success story like Yankee Hotel Foxtrot in Fiona’s future? Stay tuned.

UPDATE: Jesse reports from the Free Fiona protest at Sony HQ. More »
