Brace yourself for Hell-On, Neko Case's latest album, coming June 1 from ANTI- Records. Don’t miss her live at Hoyt Sherman Place on Friday, September 7 at 8:00 PM.
Five years have passed since Case's last solo project, The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight, the Harder I Fight, the More I Love You. In the interim, she sang on Whiteout Conditions, the 2017 release from longtime bandmates The New Pornographers. The year before that, she released a vinyl box set of her solo work and joined k.d. Lang and Laura Veirs on the case/lang/veirs project.
Neko is a major poet by any standard, a songwriter less interested perhaps in traditional narrative form than in distilling a pure moment of time. She is an artist whose songs are so textured in their presentation that the subtleties filter into the subconscious while the overall effect astonishes. But rather than each of her progressive albums disposing of what came before it, there is, instead, a sense of continuation at play in which every album exists like the subsequent chapter to a novel that grows more complicated and intriguing as it progresses.
