Music Reviewed: Neko Case

If you haven’t already heard of Neko Case, stop reading this and look her up.

Just kidding, you should read this review first.

Case, a Tacoma native, has a honey-sweet voice that can fill any heart with sadness or joy, often at the same time.  Case has been around for a while, first starting in the 90’s.  Now 48, Neko Case is still on fire.  With her most recent record, The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You, Case mourns the losses of her family while still leaving hope.  Neko Case’s buttery vocals have been helping me plow along through the masses of schoolwork us kids seem to have these days, as she sings about sadness in the present, but the happiness that the future is sure to bring.

Now, stop reading this review and listen to her first record, Blacklisted. I dare you not to cry.

The library has her CDs, but you can also check out and e-listen to the new CD through Hoopla.
