There is little room for improvement when it comes to alt-country chanteuse and New Pornographer Neko Case. That sultry voice and auburn locks.
Oh, yup, that’d about do it. Put her on the hood of a muscle car weilding a sword. This makes her 250% better than the leading brand.
Middle Cyclone, the follow-up to 2006’s Fox Confessor Brings the Flood, is slated for a March 3, 2009 release on Anti Records. 15 tracks with guest spots by M. Ward, Sarah Harmer, Garth Hudson and members of Los Lobos, Calexico, Lilys, Giant Sand, New Pornos, the Sadies, etc.
Here she is at Bumbershoot 2008 singing the title track from the forthcoming album (but be warned the sound quality is bass-heavy and scratchy).
