Neko Case's new album comes out in a week or so, but can be previewed in its entirety at NPR First Listen. I am hoping when she goes on tour she will allow NPR ALL Songs Considered do a podcast of one of her shows. Beyond her distinctive smooth voice, Neko has a memorable band for her solo work.
It is freezing in NYC - but crocuses are out and some daffodils are sending up shoots. I want to hear the sound of flip flops and even sooner the cardinal song heralding warmer days. I did see a couple of male American Robins the other day - theya re moving north early to claim the best territory- if they survive any bad weather ahead.
