[mp3] Neko Case - "Middle Cyclone"

As you are almost certainly well aware (and as previously reported here and in a million other places), Neko Case is set to release her latest studio album, Middle Cyclone, next Tuesday (March 3) through Anti. To celebrate, the label has released one of the highlights for free download - the plaintive title track. We all know Case can flat-out wail with the best of them, but “Middle Cyclone” shines more for its quiet understatement than any attempt at vocal (s)heroics. It’s a vulnerable cry to be loved, and stands in stark contrast to the brash, tongue-in-cheek “People Got A Lotta Nerve”, which surfaced last month. Word is that Middle Cyclone continues to explore new sounds for the ever-evolving Case, and at a sprawling 15 songs long there is certainly space for her to pull out some new tricks. Can’t wait….
