Listening on iPod to Neko Case and this woman has the most amazing voice. Singing voice, because when Neko speaks between songs she is more childlike without emotion or depth. But when she sings there is a fountainhead of inspiration and energy and vision and possibly Divine guidance. You cannot hear her and not feel her sincerity and respect for the songs. Rare talent far beyond being an entertainer. An Artist - with capital "A." Will be very big.
"Live in Austin" has her in top country form with complimentary tasty yet understated country twanging band. Amazon has, or had, it on sale in case you need a Case.
She also sings with The New Pornographers and some of their songs have grown on me. I put them down in this blog when first listened to CD. Mistake. I make many.
