Neko Case: Fox Confessor Brings the Flood

Will Hermes, Spin, March 2006

BESIDES HAVING THE SEXIEST snaggletooth in indie rock, Neko Case may be the scene's hardest-working gal. She records and tours with Canuck ultrapoppers the New Pornographers; writes, records, and tours as a solo artist; and also finds time for the occasional side project (like her currently dormant duo with Carolyn Mark, the Corn Sisters). And she's no one-trick pony; her majestically outsize voice, one of pop music's best, blows up the Pornos' '80s-rock fantasies, her own country songs, or a cover by the Shangri-Las with equal power.
