Neko Case

The proud, few long-time readers of this blog know that one of our favorite bands is The New Pornographers. On a related note, pretty much all of us are madly in love with Neko Case. Her profile in The New York Times Sunday Magazine is a little James Lipton-like in its praise, but captures her complexities and difficulties - a must-read for any fan of hers, or of the New Pornographers, or of, you know, good music.

Just for old times' sake:

Awesome! That's my 2nd fave song on that album behind the title track.

I concur with all your sentiments. Though I am a bit concerned that her solo career peaked with "Blacklisted."

I don't disagree. As much as I like her alt/country stuff, for my money, Neko is at her best when she's belting out rock songs.

You like Mass Romantic more than Letter From An Occupant? More than Jackie?
