Fiona Apple – The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than The Driver Of The Screw And Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do

$59.95 Inc. GST

Fiona Apple’s “The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than The Driver Of The Screw And Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do,” often shortened to “The Idler Wheel…”, is a deeply personal and raw exploration of love, loss, and the complexities of human relationships. Released in 2012, it marked Apple’s return to music after a seven-year hiatus and showcased her signature blend of piano-driven melodies, poetic lyrics, and powerful vocals.

The album’s unconventional title, derived from a poem by Apple herself, sets the tone for its unconventional approach. It delves into challenging themes with unflinching honesty, tackling subjects like heartbreak, societal pressures, and self-discovery. Apple’s lyrics are often cryptic and metaphorical, inviting multiple interpretations and leaving a lasting impression on the listener.

Musically, “The Idler Wheel…” is a departure from her earlier work, incorporating elements of jazz, blues, and rock into her signature piano-based sound. The instrumentation is sparse yet evocative, creating a space for Apple’s voice to take center stage and convey the emotional intensity of the lyrics.
