Neko Case

Fox Confessor Brings The Flood, due out March 7th, is the latest offering by Neko Case. Her fourth album appears to bring to climax her genre-bending resume, which has spanned indie rock collaborations with the New Pornographers, tours with the cinematic Calexico, and her silky smooth "roots-infused vocal stylings." Fox Confessor's liner notes nod to the inclusion of The Band's Garth Hudson, Calexico's Joey Burns and John Covertino, and Giant Sand's Howe Gelb.

I feel like this album is going to resonate with a lot of people. Not only is she a highly talented musician in her own right, but it appears that we as a populace (or consumers) are once again at a point that strong roots/pop based females can sit at the head of the table (see the success of Jenny Lewis' latest album). Can't help but think of Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn.

Neko Case will be performing on Jay Leno - March 9th

Upcoming regional performances:
Club Soda - 4/4/06 - Montreal, QC
The Roxy - 4/5/06 - Boston, MA

    We've been playing this one at work quite a bit lately; i think it's gonna go over well; though it probably won't break her out into the mainstream.

    I just listened to these tracks in earnest and was hooked. In this, her "natural style", her voice always takes me a few moments to adjust. Something about that sharp aluminum edge with such earnest down-home lyrics. Her voice fits the New Pornographers style so well, like a punchy trumpet line, that i have taken it for granted that she's a chanteuse of the country sort.
