Music: Middle Cyclone by Neko Case

An artist we knew mostly from her work in The New Pornographers, we heard an interview by Neko Case on the radio, and it intrigued us enough to pick up an album she released earlier this year, Middle Cyclone. We would describe the album as an indie-rock-alternative-country hybrid. We really like it.

"Magpie comes a calling,
Drops a marble from the sky.
Tin roof sounds alarming,
'Wake up, child
Let this be a warning.'
Say the magpie to the morning,
Don't let this fading summer pass you by."
-Magpie to the Morning

"I have waited with a glacier's patience,
Smashed every transformer with every trailer,
Till nothing was stainding
Sixty-five miles wide.

But still you are nowhere,
Still you are nowhere,
Nowhere in sight.
Come out to meet me,
Run out to meet me,
Come into the light."
-This Tornado Loves You

Quick vote: This is a cool album, we like it.
