Why do Neko Case's new album Middle Cyclone attract me? Not just for the interesting album cover(holding a sword on a muscle car?!) but also her extraordinary narrative style. How do you expect a song called 'This Tornado Loves You' would sounds like if you've never listen to Neko Case's music before? Not typical folk songs-- her songs may be simple but what and how they evoke you, is a feeling that makes her songs so unforgettable; like the way the cryptic lyrics ("I'm a men-eater") and delicate backdrop comes together as a beautiful melody that is the track 'People Got A Lotta Nerve'. Middle Cyclone not only once again proven Neko Case as a master songwriter but also a gorgeous singer. Though each songs were carefully crafted, it still feels softly spontaneous. I'd be a shame if you missed Middle Cyclone.
