Neko Case Brings The Flood To The Troc

Neko Case came to town Saturday night to play The Trocodero while promoting her latest, Fox Confessor Brings The Flood, and put on a stellar performance. She is amazing live, as I figured she might be after hearing her live album, The Tigers Have Spoken. What a voice! Her band was top notch, particularly her backup singer, Kathy, who's harmonies added to the otherworldly, ethereal sound that Neko conjures with her music. If you haven't checked Neko out I would recommend Furnace Room Lullaby as a primer.

Opener Martha Wainwright impressed me enough that I picked up her self-titled full length at the merch table. She, too, has a beautiful voice, and some of her original tunes reminded me of a combo of Kasey Chambers and Catatonia.

For you Neko lovers out there, here is a live version of "Set Out Running" courtesy of the good people at Green Clothes.
