This year's Record Store Day is already gearing up to be an unforgettable event.
Neko Case recorded the 'Squidbillies' theme song, and it is pretty great.
Neko Case shows off her nerdy side by playing some iconic sci-fi characters in her new video with Kelly Hogan, 'These Aren't the Droids.'
In 1997, alt-country singer-songwriter Neko Case released her debut album, ‘The Virginian,’ which was half made up of cover songs originally recorded by expected and not-so-expected artists like the Everly Brothers and Queen. Very few people paid attention to it. But the record serves as an intro point to the follow-up album, 2000’s ‘Furnace Room Lullaby,’ which was credited to Neko Case & Her Boyfriends (and includes future New Pornographers bandmate Carl Newman). People paid attention to this one.
To say Neko Case is exorcising demons on 'The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight, the Harder I Fight, the More I Love You' is unfair. She long ago came to terms with her parents' failures, and in an interview with NPR, she spoke candidly about their deaths, revealing they never wanted a child and didn't treat her well.
MusicFestNW returns to Portland, Ore., this fall for its 13th annual run with a number of top-name acts in tow. This year’s multi-venue festival brings performances by more than 150 bands and artists — Neko Case, Young the Giant, Animal Collective and the Head and the Heart, to name a few — during the week of Sept. 3-8.
The Pornographer doesn't fall far from the tree. To say that 'Shutdown the Streets,' the third solo record from New Pornographers frontman AC Newman, sounds like the Vancouver band's work is understatement -- yet at the same time, the album is thoroughly his own.
