New Neko Case!
OK, now it's time to look forward to the new year in music. In that respect, I'm totally looking forward to the new Neko Case album! It's called "Middle Cyclone," and if the first single is any indication, this record may land on numerous year end lists. The song is "People Got a Lotta Nerve," and Case's label Anti- has an interesting proposal for publicity: they'll donate $5 to Best Friends Animal Society for every blog post about the new song. Not only does it bring attention to the song but it highlights a good cause as well. And the song itself is quite nice. Not only does it showcase a nice up tempo pop-country vibe that is one of her trademarks but it has an interesting take on people's perceptions of human (and animal) nature.
Neko Case - "People Got a Lotta Nerve"
PS...how badass is that album cover?
PPS...Neko Case is in competition for best female singing voice in all of music. If you have a chance to hear her live, you should take it.
