Neko Case – Maybe Sparrow

Neko Case
“Maybe Sparrow”

What you hear is what you get with Neko Case. I saw her perform at the Granada in Dallas, TX last year and her performance was great. This music falls under country, but there’s so much more to it than just country. “Alt country” doesn’t do it justice either.

Neko is a self-made gal. She ran away from home when she was 15 and started a punk band. She moved over into a more twangy sound after that with a band called “the weasles”.

She calls her backing band “the boyfriends”.

From the Album: Fox Confessor Brings the Flood

“Open Your Eyes”

I just love this song. The vocals/chords remind me a country song I can’t quite place, but this song feels a bit too ethereal to stick it into one genre of music. This is the theme song to a sad movie, somewhere. I’m sure of it.
