ListeningLounge: Fox Confessor Brings the Flood by Neko Case

Often inscrutable lyrics but with a siren voice

These days I've been listening rather obsessively to Neko Case's "Fox Confessor Brings the Flood."

I just can't get enough of her voice! I love her lyrics, too, although she really makes you work to understand her songs. This album is actually a little bit better than "Blacklisted" which I reviewed here before.

I'm not fond of most country music -- it's just too predictable and cloying. But I love what they call "Alt Country" which drops most of the (often fake) twang but keeps the story telling. As far as I'm concerned, Neco Case is the darling of Alt Country.

Or get it from e-Music for $.33 cents a song! (First 25 songs free!)
