5: Neko Case - Fox Confessor Brings The Flood

Neko Case is a siren, a haunting voice from the landscape of historical American geography. From the hills of Appalachia over the green valleys where country was born through the choking sands of the dust-bowl across the plains of Texas under the scorching desert sun of the west and right down to the oceanic views of Hollywood she brings the ghost of yesteryear into the present. Her dark melodic tongue waggles at us from the light of the drive-in movie screen and whistles at us from the towering redwoods. Her deep reverent howl travels along the country wind whispering memories like they just happened yesterday. Her heart slips right down into our ears and shines a light that warms our bellies. She is the soul and melody of a country drunk on moonshine and happy to be alive and sad to know the past and afraid of the future and wild with hunger and woozy with the sound of her voice.
