Fiona Apple SXSW 2012

The news that Fiona Apple would break out of her miniature hiatus with new material and a handful of SXSW appearances was enough to send one particular Thrillcall staffer into a kind of lovestruck frenzy. And for good reason: her new material reminds us of a particular void in the oversaturated singer-songwriter arena that it seems only Fiona, with her precisely raw approach, can fill. She broke out three new songs at SXSW – watch all of them below. (Presumably, these will show up on her next album, with the unwieldy title: The Idler Wheel is wiser than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipping Cords will serve you more than Ropes will ever do.)

Fiona Apple – Valentine
