I’ve been a huge fan of Fiona Apple ever since her first album burst into my adolescent consciousness, so it’s good to see that she’s every bit as quirky, dark, and insanely talented now as she was when she was a brash 19 year-old.
Anyhoo, I was perusing her recent live performances online and recently came across this gem from her show at the Bowery Ballroom in New York earlier this year. It is hands down the most heartbleedingly romantic thing I’ve seen in a long time. The way she writhes and shakes it seems like there are far too many raw emotions rushing to escape her wiry body as she struggles to cope with the bottle neck. In short – it’s fucking amazing.
