iTunes Review

For those who have already fallen under her spell, singer/songwriter Neko Case’s voice is a wonder. So when the fluttering guitar at the beginning of “This Tornado Loves You” ushers in Case’s mellifluous singing on her new release, Middle Cyclone, it’s like a comforting scent from junior high. Her fifth album has widescreen ambition coupled with an intimate-sounding execution. In addition to usual suspects the New Pornographers and Calexico, she also collaborates with everyone from Los Lobos to M. Ward to Garth Hudson (of the Band fame). The easy-swinging “Magpie to the Morning” sounds like a lost folk song once learned at summer camp, while her surprising interpretation of the Sparks’ “Never Turn Your Back On Mother Earth” is as fresh and topical as ever. It's the ideal meeting of craft (strong arrangements and orchestrations) and art (Case's singular brand of singing plus inspired instrumental contributions) that made this highly anticipated album ultimately worth the wait.

Customer Reviews

Album cover art one of the best!

Beautifully understated work from Ms. Case as she delivers the follow-up to The Fox Confessor Brings the Flood. While this album didn't stay on my playlist for weeks like Fox Confessor, it's still leaps in front of many other contemporary female artists' releases and a couple of gems on this country/rock LP make it worth the listen. There are weaknesses most notably the inclusion of the lengthy last track which seems to be just an audio recording of nocturnal background chirping of insects. Still, it is convenient that it ends an album that evokes our - and Neko's - love affair with mother nature. She imbues these songs with such earnestness and a voice that always comes from the heart. And this is what always brings me back for another listen, whether it be her latest release or one of her previous albums. jogu

Alternative country singer/songwriter Neko Case won a large and loyal audience for her smoky, sophisticated vocals and the downcast beauty of her music. Born in Alexandria, Virginia, Case moved around often as a child, spending the largest part of her youth in Tacoma, Washington. She left her parents at age 15, and three years later she started playing drums for several bands on the Northwest's punk rock scene. Case moved to Vancouver in 1994 to enter art school, and simultaneously joined the punk...
