Fiona Apple Heading to the Palace in Albany Oct. 19

I took notice to this particularly since a friend of mine, who is releasing an album later this month and is currently being featured on a reality TV Show (Miss Advised), recently described herself in an interview with me as sounding like a mix of Sheryl Crow and Fiona Apple. (starting to work on the feature for that today)

So, for anyone who might want a preview-like-experience of Fiona Apple's concert coming up Oct. 19 at 8pm at The Palace - you could check out Julia Price (JP)'s new album out on July 30.

Then, check out the concert at The Palace. Tickets on sale this Friday, July 13 - ranging from $34.50 to $59.50.

Here's the press release -

Fiona Apple will play the Palace in support of her first release in seven years, entitled “The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than The Driver Of The Screw And Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do.” Since making her debut in 1997 with "Tidal" and its Grammy Award winning single "Criminal," Fiona has gone on to define herself as one of modern music's most unique and creative voices.

“Apple’s first LP since 2005 is full of cold truths and her most raw music yet,” said Rolling Stone. “Throughout, Apple sings amazingly, wringing different colors from her voice in every song.” The New York Times’ Jon Pareles praised “The Idler Wheel…” as “a collection of stripped-down, percussive songs that’s as passionate, smart and cutting as anything she’s done” in a Sunday “Arts & Leisure” cover story. “Ms. Apple writes metaphor-laden outpourings set to music that pull rock, show tunes, classical piano and jazz into her own realm of brooding and bravado.” called “The Idler Wheel…” “magical” and Entertainment Weekly awarded it an “A,” observing: “this is an album that will make you stay up late, playing each song over and over, trying to answer the questions it stirs up…Like Apple herself, it's highly confessional and creative and temperamental, and will probably make you fall crazy in love.” “She doesn't simply push herself vocally; she embraces the role of the contortionist, the strange expression, the note that might make someone turn away,” said NPR Music, which gave fans a “First Listen” to the album last week. “She also sings beautifully at times. It's a mix, reflective of the tangle she's trying to unravel — thought itself.”
