"Equally well-regarded in the indie rock and alt-country worlds, Neko Case has built a career defined by both strong will and musical versatility. Her chief attribute is her astonishing, siren-like voice, which she applies to songs that are simultaneously rugged and heartbreaking." Rolling Stone
There's a special challenge to being an artist in this increasingly fractured cultural age - a delicate balancing act, between being of your time, and striving for timelessness.
Few contemporary artists even try but Neko Case is an exception. Case's creative evolution has made for an impressive story so far, indexing both country and alternative music to be the dictionary definition of alt.county.
Her most recent album, Middle Cyclone is the most remarkable chapter in that continuing saga. For Case, the songs and themes on Middle Cyclone express a long internal struggle, a pitched battle between nature and nurture.
