Neko Case - Fox Confessor Brings the Flood

NEKO CASE Fox Confessor Brings the Flood CD

Fox Confessor Brings the Flood is like a cabinet of ominous curios that have long been buried. All that remains are rumors of mysteries that have found sustenance in song. Each presents an ethereal fable that Neko Case sings with a voice that can, and does, suck the terror out of purgatory. There's little good that can seep out of madness or wreckage. But this collection, written by Ms. Case with the occasional assistance of The Sadies, sheds light on some of the subliminal effects of consternation. The surreal details that are revealed are dreamlike, not nightmarish. Guitarist Paul Rigby and a supporting cast that includes The Sadies, Howe Gelb, Garth Hudson and Kelly Hogan add to the shivers. The specter of Roy Orbison sighs in approval. [Anti]
