  1. Neko Case (Middle Cyclone Tour)

    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. Behind them videos of cyclones, airplanes and anthropomorphic animals were projected on a screen. But the attention was clearly on Case, her stunning voice, as well as her solid backing band. She gave a full concert from Washington, D.C.’s 9:30 Club, which was webcast live on NPR.org.

  3. Neko Case talks about her favorite guitar

    As part of a series about music technology called "Noise Makers," we’re talking to musicians about their favorite noise-making device.

    When asked about the most important gear she brings on tour, Neko Case immediately points to the 1960 Fender Jazzmaster. Previously, the guitar belonged to Case’s favorite guitar player of all time, Pete Staples.

    But more than its sentimental value, Case speaks of the guitar’s lower register, which she says helps her with vocal tuning: "Low end is a really hard thing to capture at a live show sometimes, if you’re singing. It’s a vibration that’s not that easy to make with your own body sometimes."

    Plus, she simply adores it. Short on superlatives, Case let her imagination run, describing it as "a sleek panther covered in maple syrup shaking in slow motion."

  4. Song Exploder : The New Pornographers - Brill Bruisers

    The New Pornographers are kind of a supergroup, with seven members in the band, including Neko Case and Dan Bejar, who are both acclaimed songwriters with their own successful solo careers. But the band is led by Carl Newman, and in this episode, he breaks down the title song from their sixth album Brill Bruisers. Plus you’ll hear some thoughts from bassist and co-producer John Collins. My interview with Carl Newman was recorded live at the Greene Space at WNYC.
