Neko Case - 'The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love'

Album Info

  • Label: Epitaph
8 / 10 Proving herself to still be one of the most authoritative voices in the alt.country firmament, Neko Case’s sixth album is typically sumptuous and lusciously heart-rending. With its distant brassy peals, ‘Calling Cards’ comes over like the lazily loungey track an expectant ex of Tom Waits would hum over the fourth whiskey sour of the night, while ‘City Swans’ ramps things up into epic, twanging grown-up pop territory. “I’m not the runt of the litter”, she declares on ‘Man’, ahead of a killer, almost Weezer-sounding breakdown. Too damn right you’re not.
