I’m a little embarrassed to admit it, but I’m completely unfamiliar with Neko Cases’s work. I’ve heard the name, of course, and I can’t tell you how many friends and acquaintances have recommended her, but I just haven’t taken the time to seek her out. This cut, from the forthcoming Ghost Brothers of Darkland County soundtrack, was enough to convince me that I need to. It’s a lovely number, and her cooing, confident vocal suits the track just about perfectly. Choice couplet: “I can be as nice as pie whenever I mean to. / Put my hand in your front pockets and tighten up your screws.” Highly recommended.
