better version of me
Ever since her missing-in-action third album leaked a couple of months ago, things have been quiet in the Fiona Apple camp... until very recently. MTV and Entertainment Weekly (via FionaApple.org) report that Ms. Apple chose to shelve her in limbo third album, Extraordinary Machine. Previously, various news sources had reported that Sony had shelved the record, claiming that there wasn't a single, while these latest articles claim that Fiona wasn't happy with Jon Brion's production work.
EW and MTV report that she's now working with Brian Kehew of Moog Cookbook. However, Mike Elizondo (who has worked with Dr. Dre and the Roots) told Bass Player Magazine that he was producing the new record.
Adding more fuel to the fire is a post from the Roots' ?uestlove on the Okay Player message board that he's be drumming on Elizondo's version of the album, and that both the Elizondo and Brion produced versions of Extraordinary Machine will be released together as a two disc set.
Now taking bets on what comes out first: this or the new G'n'R.
My friend Graham, who despite being in Edmonton (and soon Toronto), is still way more plugged into hiphop in Vancouver than I ever will be, has kindly pointed out two shows that you may want to attend:
DJ Z-Trip spins at Richard's on August 23rd. Black Sheep support. Who's Black Sheep?? What's a Black Sheep?? Remember them? Graham is now going to point out that they've had multiple albums since then.
Common plays the Commodore the very next night. I wasn't a big fan, but his new (mostly Kanye produced) album is growing on me.
Don't forget about the Decemberists tonight. If that's not enough for you Scarlett J. is on too... oh swoon!
now playing: Devandra Banhart - Cripple Crow
