Middle Cyclone by Neko Case

Neko Case
Album: Middle Cyclone
Label: Anti-/Epitaph
Rating: ****

The only problem with Neko Case is that she doesn’t release solo material fast enough. We can expect something new from her about every three years — that doesn’t cut it for someone this good. Middle Cyclone is another stellar release from the alt.country artist, who also sings with The New Pornographers. It’s loaded with infectious twang, crazy piano tracks (she recorded multiple piano parts on some tunes) and great guest spots from her Porno bandmates and members of Los Lobos and Calexico. With lyrics about animals, nature and tornadoes, this could be the first great summer album of the year.
