Neko Case – Live From Austin, TX – 2017 180 gram Vinyl LP
New West Records 180 gram vinyl LP pressing. This debut Austin City Limits performance from August 2003, captures songs from Neko Case’s three seminal solo releases up to that time, combining elements of country, gospel and punk for a very unique sound. Her voice has been described as lush, torchy, melancholic – even scary (someone once wrote that “she sings like Patsy Cline’s ghost”). Neko began her career as a drummer in a punk band, but it wasn’t long before she started experimenting with songwriting and singing.
She also continues to perform as a member of The New Pornographers, but her solo work is where her songwriting skills shine most. As she herself says, “I want to write songs that are timeless… maybe just something more like a novel than a short story.”
