Episode 12: Neko Case

March 17th, 2020

Episode 12: Neko Case is the singer everybody loves to love. For over 20 years she has delighted listeners with her alt-country-ish-but-oh-so-much-more repertoire, both solo and with indie darlings The New Pornographers. In this episode of Reselect, Dave, Eric, and Sarah fawn all over Ms. Case, specifically for her solo work, and make the case (pun intended) for her as one of the best songwriters going (you thought that was going to say "singers" -- well yes, that too). Albums covered include almost everything from 1997's The Virginian up through 2013's mouthful of a title, The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight, the Harder I Fight, the More I Love You. [Apologies to fans of 2009's Middle Cyclone: it was skipped for time's sake only.]

NOTE: This episode was recorded well before (and the intro not long before) the coronavirus issues currently affecting the world in terrible ways, hence the lack of any mention therein. Our best wishes go out to all of you, for whatever way you may be affected: stay healthy and hang in there!
