Neko Case | Hell-On
According to Liz Itkowski: “Neko Case is a prolific collaborator. Her seventh album Hell-On is peppered with friends like A.C. Newman, Beth Ditto, Laura Veirs, and Mark Lanegan. And while the other people’s voices take up a significant amount of space on her new album, Case still owns the room. Her voice, as brilliant as ever, is piercing and warm, calling you to the table. After 25 years of recording and countless projects, she still crafts a meaningful album.
A reluctant songbird, Case is clearly in touch with her feminine rage on Hell-On. Coming off her album and tour with k.d. lang and Laura Veirs, she sounds emboldened, too pissed off to stay quiet. She doles out her anger in spoonfuls, washed down with humor and hooks. Like a modern siren, Case lures you in with her hypnotic voice until you become lost in the wreckage of her stories.”
