Some of you may be reading this blog post while actually listening to your very recently purchased copy of Middle Cyclone, the new album by Neko Case, officially released yesterday. I'm sure you feel, as I do, that it's been worth the wait.

Well actually, I must confess, I heard the album quite a few times back in January as I was preparing for this Session and there were many things that I found striking as I listened to it; song structure for one (unconventional, original), lyrics for another (poetic and beautiful), marsh sounds (comforting).

The timing for the release of this Session couldn't be better. Not only can you go out and buy the album with special guests Sarah Harmer, M. Ward and others but now you can download this Session and hear some of these new songs performed as a trio with Paul Rigby on acoustic guitars and Kelly Hogan on vocals.

And in case you were wondering who inspired the song "That Teenage Feeling"...? Well you'll find that out too.

This CBC Radio 3 Session was recorded in Toronto in January of 2009. Here's a taste!

Hi Strengin,
We wanted to release the Neko Case session with the release of her album. I know you are looking forward to the Mother Mother session, it is awesome. It will be coming out in a few more weeks.

Thanks Marie,
Glad to hear it hasn't been forgotten. I completely understand why it's been delayed every week since it was first announced.. definitely a tease like Pawistik said ;)

This will have a permanent spot on my MP3 player, to be relistened to often.

What a wonderful person to listen to speak, and sing.

Tariq, I love how you leave open spaces in your conversation. Less is more, and gives the artist room to spread out and fill the spaces with their thoughts.
