Just a short one for now, though I know I haven’t been writing much anyway. Neko Case’s new album just came out and it is of course really great. If you know her work you might be wondering “Joe, why are you bothering to post this? It is only just and natural that Neko Case should release a great new album every year. Why do you feel obliged to shout it from the digital rooftops, you grotty ratfink?” I cannot help myself, yet I feel no sense of shame. Go forth and listen.
