Neko Case at ACL

Posted by admin On September - 28 - 2008

-A.S. Neko Case the solo performer is simple, with a country twang and beautiful harmonies. Not the kind of music I usually get down to, but nice to listen to regardless. Taking the stage with a band that included a banjo and upright bass, Case was a ways away from the New Pornographers.

Neko Case the comedian and professional spitter of banter was who I enjoyed more. She explained to the crowd that she was about to play a new song about elephants and whales that go on hunting expiditions together. When her back up singer urged for more details, including if their prey was sharks, Case obliged.

“They capture sharks stuffed with babies. It’s a delicacy.”

She then sung into the mic, “Orca whale ate your baby.” As the crowd cracked up at the fiery Case, she was sure to mention that she didn’t condone the eating of babies.

“That’s not funny, babies are precious.”

~Z.T.~ Not as precious as Neko. Andy said he didn’t find her attractive, but I think it’s more that she’s endearing than pretty. So charming and witty. And what a voice. Even if her solo stuff isn’t really my style either.

    She has a very unique voice and I love her music. Her tune complemented with the combination of lyrics and the instruments makes her a consummate solo artist that puts her in a category of her own.

    Thanks.
