Worth a listen: Neko Case

cover art via Neko's website

I am a Neko Case fan. When I think of her music, her album Furnace Room Lullabies comes to mind first. I wasn't able to find good video for the songs I sought out, but I did stumble across this one. The song, People Got a Lotta Nerve, is a sort of bonus for me as the drawings in the video have got to be the work of Julie Morstad. I love her work! I'm disappointed with myself that I don't even have Neko's latest album. What kind of fan is that?! Needless to say, I am not current on the work of many of my favorite musical artists.

Julie also did the cover art for Neko's album, Fox Confessor Brings The Flood. At least I'm fairly sure she did. As I type I realize I've never actually verified that. However, it's 3:03am and I feel comfortable taking a leap. So Julie & Neko, a two-for-one today. Happy weekend.
