Fiona Apple

The Idler Wheel...

(Epic)

Sounds Like: The haunting and beautiful fourth from the 34-year-old pianist and tortured artist figure is another masterpiece of songwriting about love and inner turmoil.

Free Association: Past LPs have been jazzier or funkier, this one’s straight-up FEELINGS.

For Fans Of: Tori/Alanis/Aimee/Regina/Nellie x Kate Bush + Janis Ian, angry jazz.

 

The Smashing Pumpkins

Oceania

(Martha’s Music)

Sounds Like: The band that began at the dawn of the ’90s only claims Billy Corgan as the remaining member, but this is actually a GREAT modernized Pumpkins LP.

Free Association: Did you know 1995’s Mellon Collie has sold 10 million copies? Sick!

For Fans Of: Sabbath x Garbage, Queen + the Cure with Nirvana, reunion records.

 

Neneh Cherry & The Thing

The Cherry Thing

(Smalltown Supersound)

Sounds Like: Swedish acidy-jazz trio teams up with legendary Swede Neneh, a long-time collaborator in punk and trip-hop, for one tripped-out set of soulful bugouts.

Free Association: Mostly covers here, but they all have a mindbending Cherry explosion.
