Fiona Apple gets her knives out

Fiona Apple's The Idler Wheel Is A Wheel Of Steel And A Banana Split Will Give You Indegestion Faster Than A Hare On A Jetpack Can Eat A Patch Of Carrots Do You Know My Brother He Is Batman Wango Mango Oblong Trousers (commonly abbreviated to The Idler Wheel...) is more than a year old, but she’s only just got round to releasing the best song off it as a single.

That song is Hot Knife – a flirtatious double entendre (“If I’m butter, then he’s a hot knife”) sung in the round, with multiple Apples chanting over a rumbling kettle drum. Rolling Stone ranked it 12th in their top 50 songs of 2012. They had a point.

Fiona Apple - Hot Knife

Interesting fact: The video was directed by Paul Thomas Anderson - whose credits include Boogie Nights and There Will Be Blood. He was briefly Fiona's own hot knife in the 1990s. Nice to see that exes can be all grown up and mature and work together without pulling each other's hair out.
