Playing hits from her new album, Middle Cyclone, Neko Case performs in-studio with CBC Radio 3. Listen for Neko’s stories about her ‘free piano challenge’, making a cardboard sound booth and recording sounds of baby birds on her album.
Emerging out of the sound of the spring peepers that close her new album, Middle Cyclone, Neko Case and her five-piece band opened the night’s performance with "Maybe Sparrow." The stage was set in something out of a nature cartoon with trees painted on long banners and an owl overseeing it all.
