    I love Neko. I thought her Adult Swim show was amazing. I haven't had the opportunity to see her on tour yet but Middle Cyclone is one of my very favorite albums.

    Does Neko have a new song out on some compilation? I was at Starbucks and heard her voice on the overhead, but it wasn't any song I knew. Didn't sound like New Pornographers material, either.

    Was it the song "Silverado'? Sarah Harmer and Neko sing that song on Sarah's new CD called Oh Little Fire.
    I always liked a good storm.

    I bought Furnace Room Lullaby recently and absolutely love it - much more country than her later albums, particularly MC. This may become my favourite Neko album I think.

    I'm moving from Chicago to Orlando this weekend and today I went from Chicago to Chattanooga today. On I-24 between Nashville and Chattanooga I spotted a big sign on the side of the road that was an ad for Middle Cyclone with the release date on it. Totally random but it was a cool surprise for me today.

    Apparently The New Pornographers were uninvited to perform at Calvin College. Here is the school's official statement:

    We believe that the decision to invite the band fit our rubric of engaging culture through a Christian lens. The band makes good, thoughtful music, and we invited them here based on their artistic merit. However, after weeks of discussion and consideration, the irony of the band's name was impossible to explain to many. The band's name, to some, is mistakenly associated with pornography. Consequently, Calvin, to some, was mistakenly associated with pornography. Neither the college nor the band endorses pornography.
    Oh dear.

    Oh jeez. I hope they don't have the Barenaked Ladies lined up for any future visits.

    Cool

    ^ lol.

    I went to see Fran Healy (of Travis) in a solo show in London last night. He has a duet with Neko on his new album!
    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."

    Neko Case has been pretty much a daily listen for the last year, after Middle Cyclone came out and it quickly became my favorite album not only of the year, but maybe of the decade. I can't wait to see what she comes out with next. She's got this crazy voice, which is the most obvious part, but her songwriting is astounding--as good as any of the best lyricists I can think of (Joanna Newsom, early REM, mid-nineties Tori, Kristen Hersh, Joni Mithcell, Dylan...). It kind of pisses me off that she gets to be so talented. Anyways, I haven't gotten to see her live yet, and I'm not living out of the US and am not sure when she'll come to Israel, but I hope to get to see her soon!

    Neko is THE best female singer-songwriter to emerge since Tori, IMO. Fox Confessor and Middle Cyclone are flawless albums and in my top ten of all time. Seeing her live was a spiritual experience for me. One New Pornographer's track I would check out is Letter From An Occupant. She sounds amazing and it's such a fun song. Actually, that song was on a CMJ cd and was only the second time I'd heard her ( I had heard a track from Furnace Room Lullaby) and it made me rush out to learn more about her. So very glad that I did.
