20-NEKO CASE-Middle Cyclone

neko case
With no New Pornographers album on sight, Neko Case returned to her career as the decade’s finest alt-country and pop-rock chanteuse with her sixth peerless collection of tunes. “Middle Cyclone” was packed with songs that shared a common reflection about a personal internal struggle to reconcile her feelings for animals and nature with the ones she has for people. Meteorological phenomenons -cyclones and tornadoes- are here metaphors about human relationships. Case’s song writing abilities showed no signs of stop growing, but the singer also took her time to revisit other artists’ work. Old classics by Sparks and Harry Nilsson benefited from her reinterpretation.

Released on Matador. Listen to some tracks at MySpace.
