Neko Case - The Tigers Have Spoken

With her amazingly passionate voice along with a backing band of a steel pedal guitar and solid rhythm section, Neko Case has release a live album of four new songs along with five covers and two songs that she has reworked on The Tigers Have Spoken. The song Loretta was on last month's Uncut sampler and sounds exactly like the Velvet Underground when Lou Reed really played guitar, think What Goes On, only with female vocals. It is available on iTunes and is a must have. A couple of the songs on the album can be downloaded, If_You_Knew and Train_From_Kansas_City. In addition to her solo alt country career, she also is part of the New Pornographers which are an amazing group. The album Mass Romantic from a couple of years ago is also a classic. A new solo album is supposed to be on the way within the year...

And just in case you ever wanted to see some soft-core, tasteful (no, really, seriously) photos of Ms. Case, check out Kutie Magazine...

I never have been a fan of live albums or soft spoken chick singers, but like this one. The recordings really don't sound live, more like done in a studio until you hear the crowd at the end. Neko belts out a nice disc.
