Neko Case - Fox Confessor Brings The Flood (Anti)
This must be Neko’s 5th album not counting her Corn Sisters and New Pornographers collaborations and it is definitely one of her best. Backed by Howe Gelb, The Sadies and Calexico she is hardly without an impressive supporting cast not forgetting the underrated Kelly Hogan on backing vocals. The songs are short, sharp, strong and play to Neko strengths as a country singer giving the female perspective on life with her own distinctive, sung from the heart style. Contender for Americana album of the year. I defy you to dislike this if you are human.
