In March 2009, Neko Case released her fifth studio album Middle Cyclone. Known for her alt-country sound, smoky, sophisticated vocals, raw emotion and forthright confident attitude, lyrically and musically, nothing compares to the beauty of Neko’s music.

People Got A lot of Nerve

“Things like animals and nature, they’re located in the tender receptor of my brain. And I’m just now trying to come to terms with the notion of loving people as much as I love those other things – because I grew up in a way that made me love the one but not the other. So, I guess I’ve been working that out for myself, and these songs are my way of reconciling those feelings.”

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter

    I became an instant fan this morning when I heard you on the NPR news game show “Wait-Wait Don’t Tell Me” with Peter Sagel. You were so witty and funny I just had to look you up on the web and hear more of your music. By the way, your free pianos from Craig’s List made me laugh! You’re awesome girl, I wish that was me who got to meet you after the show instead of your cousin. I really hope you get this note.
    your newest fan- bob
