If you were an angsty teen in the 1990s — as I was — chances are you spent a lot of time listening to Tori Amos. I haven't followed her career as closely lately, but I still like digging out her old albums now and again. Plus, I appreciate the fact that Amos (unlike, say, Liz Phair) has kept her ass-kicking indie integrity intact over the years.
On May 1, she'll release her ninth studio album, called American Doll Posse, and I've managed to get an early listen at "Big Wheel," rumored to be the album's first single. The song has a countrified rock feel that I like, plus plenty of Tori's trademark piano flourishes. To listen,
Thanks to Inkiostro for posting the track.
