Worst summer ever & Fiona Apple sets herself free (Nialler9 Podcast)


Live from week five of lockdown remote recording, it’s Andrea and Niall on Episode 88 of the Nialler9 podcast.

We dissect Fiona Apple’s much-lauded and appraised fifth album Fetch The Bolt Cutters. It’s a dizzying , constantly zig-zagging and delightfully free of convention and very likely, one of the albums of the year.

Plus, tracks of the week from CMAT, Patricia Lalor, Jamie xx and it’s officially the worst summer ever.



Worst summer ever:

All summer concerts, events & mass gatherings of 5,000 or more banned until September

Reasons To Be Cheerful

Christine And The Queens covers Travis Scott.

James Fridman photoshops
